Oh please. the list culture has been dying as long as Writting Letter has
been dying as long as Fine Culture has been dying as long as....well you
get it.

The list culture is far form dead. IM is dejour buzzbuzz that corps are
trying to leverage into cashito so yea, it will be a headline thing, but
more and morre people I know are on Lists, not IMs, to talk to and about
and with.

Besides, IM's are simply IRC made stupid. If my kids want the fluid real
time conversation thing I will show them IRC, not IMs.
