Sure, this is a protocol thing. I'm not saying that anyone needs to stop
using the JABBER name. This is the way I see it:

"Jabber is to XMPP as the Web is to HTTP."

So yeah I work on real-time messaging and presence technologies in the
Jabber community. We use a protocol called XMPP that's been standardized
in the IETF, plus we've developed lots of cool XMPP extensions that are
over here at www.xmpp.org, come help us build the real-time Internet!
