Way back in the day ICQ allowed people to put a little snippet of HTML anywhere they liked and it would show their presence. That was very cool. Yahoo can do it too. AOL offers it. Now Skype is doing it too. Why, for the sake of all that is geeky, can’t we (Microsoft) do this for messenger?
Wait, I know, I’ll use a buzz-word: it’s viral! (it’ll happen for sure now).
