Bart Wessels’ blog caught my eye once more, blogging about the possibility of adding presence to your own applications. This means you can enable the little popup menu, showing the users’ IM status, availability and contact information, in your own (webbased) applications. Very exiting and I will definitely be trying this soon. I am curious if this will work with MSN Messenger too, since the Microsoft site explicitely talks about Communicator (the business-MSN), but I’ll report back on that.
