  21. bear gigaom article about skype adding xmpp support also mentions XSF
  22. bear http://gigaom.com/2011/06/28/skype-xmpp-support/
  23. Tobias but XMPP support is only for FB interop, right?
  24. bear yes
  25. bear i'm glad we have a current sponsor page now - the gigaom article links to it
  26. Tobias :)
  27. stpeter I don't care why Skype adds XMPP support, as long as they do :)
  28. stpeter BTW, I had discussions with some guys there a *long* time ago about adding XMPP support -- probably 2004 or 2005
  29. Kev Right. I remember Justin saying he was in talks with them about them using Psi as the base, when they were first developing their client.
  30. stpeter one of the guys I talked with (at their London office when I was there in 2005) said that they used jabber groupchat as their communication method while they were developing the first version of Skype, but they promptly stopped using it once they had Skype
  31. stpeter kind of like we used IRC before we had groupchat
  32. Tobias heh
  33. Kev I'm waiting for the next big-player-to-be to come along and buy a royalty license for Swift ;)
  34. stpeter heehee
  35. stpeter I hope so!
