Google Talk Gains Gaim Developer
Sean Egan, Gaim’s lead developer, disclosed on Gaim’s Sourceforge site he has been working for Google for the past month and a half.
Google Talk has had one noteworthy instant messaging developer working in Seattle for the past few weeks. Gaim developer Sean Egan mentioned the career change on the site:
Gaim is an instant messaging client that supports numerous messaging services from a single client: AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, IRC, and others. It runs on Windows, MacOS X, Linux, and BSD platforms.
The Gaim client has consistently been one of the top ten most active projects on SourceForge, which is no surprise considering the excellence of the product. Google has really made a solid move bringing Egan on board.
