The IM Project Page Has Vanished

Wednesday April 21st, 1999

The IM Project page has been taken down at the request of Netscape. Netscape was the contributor of the Instant Messaging API document, and they have taken it down pending further review. As far as we can tell, there is nothing more to the story at this point. We'll let you know when the page comes back online.

The problem may be that to do this properly AOL would have to open IM and ICQ sourcecode to make it work properly. This is obviously a gray area at this point. If AOL opens IM do they then have to open AOL sourcecode because IM is part of that? See how it could be confusing? It is an issue that obviously needs to be dealt with now and someone at Netscape probably just jumped the gun on it.
