Bite-sized XMPP News #1
January 17, 2010
Here’s a collection of interesting XMPP-related updates from the microblogging world this week:
null_hawk31: !xmpp isnt jabber the most amazing message protocol in the world? #
For most use cases, I certainly agree.
jprieur: Reading a paper about the use of XMPP in wireless sensor networks, nice stuff. #
Too bad he didn’t provide a link to the paper. I’d love to hear more.
tinnt: just create XMPP account at http://register.jabber.org/ does anyone know this protocol? #
I think this person is a little late to the party.
abhishektiwari: XMPP for cloud computing in bioinformatics supporting discovery and invocation of asynchronous web services http://url4.eu/19HUz #
Yet another group that thinks XMPP and cloud computing will go together well.
MatStace: Interesting little app, an xmpp equivalent to mail - http://sendxmpp.platon.sk/ quicker than email #sysadmin #
An oldie, but a goodie.
schlebu: 38% of Pidgin users use Jabber/XMPP: http://pidgin.im/survey/results/survey0summary.html #pidgin #jabber #xmpp #
XMPP use is growing more every day. I wonder how many of these are Google Talk accounts?
paulscott56: Sweet! Looks like I will be working on my first XEP soon! XMPP based microblogging standard! #
There already is a start of a microblogging XEP, but it needs a bit of work. It’s always good to have more people working on this.
LarsKasper: @Raevynn Who uses proprietary ICQ nowadays? XMPP/Jabber is the way to go. #
Facebook plans to support XMPP, and I think it’s only a matter of time before the old, proprietary networks cave as well.
I hope you enjoy it!
justinmpeterson: Can any #xmpp experts point me toward a great, semi- to brutally-technical introductory primer? No links to #wikipedia (comma) please. #
I don’t think it gets more brutally technical than RFC 3920 and RFC 3921.
rysiekpl: Seems like #identica #xmpp interface is back! Yay! :) #
This was sorely missed while it was gone. Many XMPP folks hang out primarily on Identica, but sometimes the XMPP support there gets the shaft during upgrades.
jayson0429: Wow, 4 days to research, plan, install, configure & turn #openfire XMPP server into a production service. Done, done, done & Done. Love it! #
XMPP is taking over the world, one success story at a time.
krotscheck: … all this time learning LCCS, when instead I can reproduce 95% of what I need via XMPP. #headdesk #
This is exactly why XMPP is achieving success. Why build it again, when so many great extensions are already there?
nyconyco: XSF membership application open: http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Membership_Applications_January_2010 #
I encourage everyone interesting in XMPP to apply. Come help us make the XMPP Standards Foundation even better.
engineeredcomp: If configured correctly, it is almost impossible to take the XMPP based Command & Control system down. SO BE CAREFUL! #
I can’t tell if this is scary or awesome or both.
riffraff: playing with my commute-project xmpp+appengine+iphone. Fun with the first two but damn I can’t wrap my head around this apple thingies #
You heard it first on Twitter folks, XMPP is even easier to use than an iPhone!
jprieur: Book flight and hotel room for the XMPP Summit in Brussels [DONE] #
I hope to see all of you there!
jasonsalas: word back from a major sports network on XMPP after my pitch: “it doesn’t seem like we have a need for [real-time data] at the moment.” #wow #
I find this extremely funny. Most of the sports-related businesses I’ve heard of are all about fast, targeted data delivery. Sounds like an industry designed for pubsub.
will4glookr: Interested in seeing where XMPP is going. It’s the base of Google Wave, Collecta and a few other services I’m pretty excited about. #
I think it’s the basis for the new real-time stack. I expect to see many more services in the future.
REDDITSPAMMOR: #reddit Challenge: Send a XMPP message with as little code as possible.: submitted by themightyn [link] [c… http://bit.ly/5Ipsbb #rulez #
I think expect and netcat would win this contest, but it’s an interesting exercise to think about.
