Podcast: Instant Messaging with Skype, Yahoo

Miss the January 26th, live version of Your Day? Here is your chance to listen to the whole show including our technology segment on the various instant messaging services available. The technology segment begins at 34:09 in the show.

You might want to read the Pew Internet Report on Instant Messaging.

You can learn more about Skype at their website or try out Skype's voice mail by calling the GSA Technology Council on a real phone. You call (864)946-9109 using a real phone and we'll either answer using Skype, or you can listen to our outgoing message and leave a question or comment for us which we will pick up on our computer.

You can learn more about Yahoo Messenger at messenger.yahoo.com.

Think AOL is the messenger for you? It's at www.aim.com.

We talked a few minutes about a particularly nefarious instant messaging worm that can chat with you. I previously wrote about that in this blog entry.
