A while back we had a long, inconclusive thread about Jabber vs. XMPP 
vs. something else:

But we never agreed on what that "something else" should be. Sean 
suggested something with "talk" in it, naturally enough. :-) We've got 
Google Talk. We've got Live Journal Talk. Etc. Unfortunately, Yahoo has 
"Open Talk":

However, the term is not trademarked:

It seems like a nice name so I've just registered open-talk.org. I 
registered open-chat.org too, just for good measure. Shall we do 
something with these?
