Chatango is an embedable instant messaging (IM) client, written in Flash. As I’ve written before, I’m convinced that IM is of enormous, but as yet unexplored, significance to schools. Until now it’s required either standalone application or a dodgy Java applet. I’ve been dreaming for months of creating one in Flash, but whilst I’ve been dreaming, Chatango have been doing. I’m wildly excited by the result, or rather by its potential, and I’ve just got to play with it.
Where better to play than here? Below, I’ve embedded a Chatango client that links direct to me. If I’m online, why not say ‘hello’? (Thanks Joi Ito for the link).
