Love the bar

Have you seen the DiggBar? Looks like StumbleUpon and Reddit already had it but it still looks cool. So I started using digg :). Messenger Web Toolkit has a web-bar that lets you embed the Windows Live Messenger social coolness in your site. Its very well designed and looks great!

A tiny bit of Internet Duct Tape from my side and I have a bookmarklet that lets you have the Messenger WebBar on any page that you go to. Just add the link below to your Favorite Bar in IE or Bookmarks toolbar in firefox. visit your favorite site and then click on the toolbar button. Voila you have your social network that roams with you, a messenger web client accessible from anywhere for a quick chat. Still have a few more ideas to make this more useful… maybe later.

Looks like my blog doesn’t like bookmarklet urls. So here is a page with bookmarklet link.
