Meebo invented everything for us in 2007(?!)



If there would exists a "Jabber Innovation Award 2007" I would definitely give it to Silicon Valley-based Meebo. Their platform, built on top of libgaim and jabber, offers the following things currently:



Pretty awesome list, isn't it?

I recommend to try it for yourself, as I said above, registering a meebo user means effectively having a jabber address - using other systems happen through gaim.

While we're trying to push out new XEPs, they realized two things:

  • Web is the platform you should build on, because it's independent from nearly everything, yet quite popular

  • If you have a disadvantage (being a browser-based client it isn't fashionable for geeks) you better start to innovate.

  • Even if you're based on jabber, you should make sure protocol does not matter: it's the client which does the user experience



If we could only ask them, how they achieved this, and how we could make this a common knowledge of humanity and ourselves!

(The author still dreams of having an open meebo platform-like solution for desktop clients too through standardizing and WebKit/Gecko/CHtmlView)

Come on... This is the same group that has broken Jabber MUC in their web GUI for the past 6 months with the addition of their 'chatrooms'.

Another variation louis vuitton handbags designed by Marc Jacobs is the Speedy 30 skillfully ornamented with lingerie lace in Monogram Dentelle canvas. The intricate lurex thread embroidery is artfully contrived. The Louis vuitton bags Monogram Multicolor canvas Speedy 30 designed by Takashi Murakami has the contemporary look. Four golden brass corners help to preserve louis vuitton base and the outside pocket is secured by an S-lock. lv is suitable for any occasion.

christian audigier have a rather smooth and "soft" overall design with a rounded toe and a four inch heel. The Stacey Pump - This shoe is one of the first that I had seen when the pumps from hardy shirt first came available. They have an open ED Hardy Shoes design and can be found in some seriously gorgeous colors. They have a shiny patent upper, with a design on the heel portion of the shoe, with a four inch heel. hardy shirts stand apart as being some of the most feminine styles for women to date.


The Chanel bag vintage collection is known as one of their most successful ones so far. Ranging from haute couture, wedding gowns to accessories and footwear, Chanel handbags designs have been heavily featured in the fashion line ups. All of these items are available in most Chanel stores and boutiques. You will also find these as part of the chanel watches vintage online collection.
