Remember When AOL Instant Messenger Was Our Facebook?

Giz: After bowing down to Google Talk this week, AIM is effectively dead. Most buddy lists are ghost towns. Chatters fled to Google, Skype and Facebook for their conversational needs. But at its pinnacle, AIM was something singular and amazing.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yah AIM was amazing, but now that it's integrated with Google Talk I don't need to log into AIM anymore. It's all through GTalk, very simple and easy. I just wish Google would develop an in -house desktop client for GTalk, right now I'm using Trillian and it gets the job done but I think the interface is ugly.

Except in Europe, where people used MSN or something else entirely.

Also, convoluted? My Digsby looks a helluva lot cleaner than that AIMbomination.
