Kristian Köhntopp: Let’s have a chat – a taxonomy and some context (history and future; 20160606)

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/31

A few months ago was my first ever presence on IRC wich started like this:

[13:45]  bear with me: after BITNET relay chat, I've totally skipped the IRC thing, so
[13:46] * jeroenp_ is IRC n00b and wonders if netiquette is roughly the same as in the mid 1990s (:
[13:46]  jeroenp_: I don't think it changed a lot...
[13:46]  Cool: /me works on IRC too (:
[13:47]  Anyone having time to help me with `zypper dup` on Tumbleweed indicating `python3-urllib3-1.16-1.1.noarch requires python(abi) = 3.5` ?

I will post later on my own chat history (including BITNET Relay conference system on BITNET/EARN).

This post is just to mention a few keywords of Let’s have a chat – a taxonomy and some context(This is a text I wrote for work, but it contains nothing work specific and I might as well drop it here.… – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

Kristian Köhntopp now basically uses his G+ as a blog ( is now defunct) with a great set of collections.

I’ve kept my blog as I find G+ very hard to search for content and a “bla bla” for me often is the fastest way to find something back that interests me.

Hence the keywords below on his post Let’s have a chat – a taxonomy and some context.

  • Chat, IRC, ICQ, Jabber, Skype, Google Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Slack and RocketChat
  • Google Wave, Apache Wave, Google Documents  and Google Spaces.
  • Managing presence in adverse circumstances: status, /away, nickname renaming
  • Deliverables
  • One identity, many clients: a common history (federation, standards, XML, SIP, extensions, incompatibilities)
  • Many-to-Many conversations: Groups versus Places (rooms, channels, discoverability)
  • Media, bots (hello Eliza) and API
  • emoji, giphy and meme references
