It's a little crazy to see the flood of visitors coming to my site today after looking up Google Talk Instant Messenger. Apparently, like me, they've read the various articles around the web today and are hungry for more details.

It sounds like we'll have more than just details by tomorrow, when Google is rumored to be scheduled for a release of their new IM software. If you haven't seen it already, Download Squad has released a full review of Google Talk (via Digg), including several screenshots of the minimal yet pleasing user interface. There are even reports of people who have made it onto the Google Talk network via Jabber already.

I was a little worried that the information people were finding on my blog was really out-of-date or misleading, but it's actually quite surprising to read just how close to reality the blogosphere was almost a full year ago.

I'm looking forward to playing around with Google Talk tomorrow. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

You are the first person I thought of when I heard the news last night. :-)
