I've just added a couple of "widgets" in our sidebar. They're below all the archives on the right. One is a Meebo Me! widget and the other gives you my latest updates from Twitter.
I posted a while ago about Meebo, which is a fantastic web-based chat client that connects you to AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, GTalk, ICQ, and a couple of other chat accounts all at once.
Twitter is a micro-blogging service that allows me to quickly post updates via IM or even cell phone text messages about what I'm doing during the day.
I know, geektastic, right?
