Started writing a new IM system
I tried out jabber, first I was excited but after a while I became a bit annoyed at the complexity.

I want

  • simplicity
  • security
  • openess
  • no XML
  • GnuPG/PGP message encryption
  • simplest possible protocol (UDP)
  • interface to any good tool already existing (no NIH outside core protocol/service)
Currently I write a proof of concept in perl. I call it impearl

Feel free to comment/flame me :-) Will write an article in which I develop my ideas some day when the sun does shine like today. The skis are waiting.
