Google IM service is (half) live

I’ve successfully connected to Google’s new instant messaging service, powered by jabber. Rumor has it they are unveiling the service tomorrow. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, server to server jabber communications are not yet enabled. If s2s gets turned on, jabber will get the shot in the arm it needs.

If you have a gmail account and jabber client, check out this slashdot story.
