The excerpt of the presentation is:
Everyone knows GTalk; some may know, that is based on a standard protocol, jabber (XMPP). T-Online uses this for messenger in Freemail. The presentation would be a five minute summary of what is jabber, how one could start a service fast and simple, and what could we gain if we could make a unified network of this, and what problems could arise.
What would You, dear reader of mine say, if you'd be in my position?
- There are 4 major players in Hungarian market, one of them is T-Online.
- Privacy and security is not an issue (yet) in Hungary (people don't think of it too much, won't be profitable)
- Nearly everyone has an MSN account (unfortunately), so we have to say what would happen if Jabber would be put under everyone's nose (in webmail and in... and in what?) Why would they switch if at all? Why would it be better?
- Hot topics are: eventing (mainly twitter), and social networking*, in which monopoly could be broked also
- Internet penetration is about 34-38%, mobile penetration is above 100%, although mobile internet/wap is rarely used (or it's used by the 60% rest who does not use internet)
So, what would you say?
* (we have some social network sites, most popular is property of T-Online, called iWiW (Who-is-Who?). Although it's not very customisable, when someone logs in, basically could reach everyone's data: name, location, about myself, reach addresses (e-mail only shown for 'friends' by default), 10 MB worth of pictures, one embedded video from youtube; mostly used features are pictures, searching; average connections is about 300-400 per user)
