Presence Gets To Online Gaming, Perhaps to Stimulate Integration With Business Applications

AOL has just announced an SDK that lets authors of online games access its AIM and ICQ instant messaging community. As a result, gamers will be able to:

  • Look up the AOL buddy list, and invite friends to join
  • Text each other in real time
  • Make new connections

This sounds interesting. Such consumer-led integration might be a great way to educate adults on the value of presence integration. And thus be a major stimulus to the integration of presence into business applications.
