OK…I’‘ve seen, even within the past couple of days, several references in various threads about weather information being delivered via Jabber/XMPP, so I wanted to pop a new thread up here to try to get peoples’’ attention on it.
I’'m working with, and have some rudimentary beginning of, a bot to deliver weather alerts and information (and was just looking at the possibilities with Amber Alert information, which also mentioned in a thread just a minute ago). Obviously, I think it makes sense to try to get some organization happening around these things.
So, let me put a call out to anyone interested in work along these lines to connect with me via XMPP. My preferred jid for this is email@example.com
On a tangent: is it possible for the forums to allow me to specify presense and status information for use in the forum from my own xmpp server? I use xmpp quite a bit, but I really have no real desire to sign up yet another xmpp account on the jivesoftware.org system just to get presense information on my forum entries.
