Michael Sampson - Currents

Cisco Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire Jabber

Collaborative Thinking

This is a bold move by Cisco (given it's commitment to SIP) to expand industry thinking around presence as well as expanding its thinking around real-time applications given the type of development capabilities made possible with XMPP.
