Messenger IM Control and Presence API Beta

image Today Angus Logan announced the availability of Windows Live Messenger IM Control & Presence API.  Get it now for your blog or website as it's a great way to connect with your customers.

In a nutshell, it allows people to publish their presence and receive messages via the web from anonymous users without Messenger client installed via a control placed in the blog (or any website).  The messages received are within the Messenger Client.

Could be interesting... I tried it but it was too wide (it needs at least 300x300px to overcome the captcha type input to prevent spam).  So once I have time to update the graphic etc. I'll think about implementing it... or figure somewhere else to put it on the blog... maybe the header itself?
