PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

Well decentralized messaging isn't a new or interesting problem, yet XMPP manages to take it and make it insanely confusing.

Just because XMPP is a standard, doesn't mean its a very good one. I'm all for the ideals XMPP supports, but its just not something I'd even consider wasting time with were I in charge of such things.
