If you haven’t checked out Meebo lately, today is a good day to do so, because, omg omg omg! Meebo has ROOMS!

Meebo is an instant message aggregator – you set up accounts for Yahoo!, AIM, GTalk, Jabber, MSN, and/or ICQ, then create ONE login for all of your accounts, so you have ONE buddy list. It’s all web-based, so you don’t need to download or install anything. You could even create rooms to pull buddies from one list together in a group chat.

Now, your buddies from any system can talk to each other in Meebo rooms! And, Meebo has set up a bunch of rooms arranged by topic, like Nintendo Wii, Vibe Magazine, and Juicy couture. Check it out at http://www.meebo.com

Now, if I could just import my Second Life and WoW buddy lists…I want convergence!

    I just realized that you can integrate multi-media/web/etc. into the Meebo rooms. Seems to me that this feature makes Meebo even more exciting for its CE potential.

    If you want convergence you should try Fidgt, you can combine all of our social networking contacts into one area. Not sure if it is going to Second Life, but if this works out, that may happen too.

  3. ooOOOoo… like a virtual classroom to go…


  4. Someone (Aaron Schmidt, I think) made a Library Fun room!
