I thought I'd try out Meebo, which you'll now see on the right-hand side of my blog.
It would be interesting to see visitors as they come to my site in real time, if nothing else, but maybe someone will strike up a conversation with me too.
The only thing that irks me is that they won't use a common protocol so I could stay logged in via AOL or MSN. Instead I have to login to their website.
We'll see how it goes.
