Jaiku Goes Open Source
Jaiku, the presence-streaming service acquired by Google last year while still in beta and subsequently left on the back burner, is getting its code moved to open-source.
This will likely spur development, if only from those still waiting for their beta-test passwords (i.e. me). Currently, Jaiku shares the same 140-character input limit as Twitter, but lacks the latter's user-interface features, at least for now.
