    Presentation Overview

    The Past, Present, and Future of Instant Messaging

    We start with evaluating communication as critical to business. Then establish the power that presence information adds to the value of communication, establish the value for IM in business. Then we talk about various other applications of IM in business infrastructure and get down to the details and talk about the state of the industry and standards (open source etc.). And then take the discussion to the future and trends that we see taking shape.
