An Improvement on Presence
The two questions I
 hear most at work:

  1. Where are you?
 (Or: Are you in xxx?)

2. Can I give you a call?
The technological answer?
       (at my job)

Microsoft Communicator
Communicator is not bad!

   The status integrates
relatively well with Outlook
It is also possible to get a
  status change alert for
     a particular person
There is one problem: we
keep our status everywhere...
All of these are
independent of each other
Location is now in the mix too
Together these technologies
automatically answer the two
 questions we started with!
However, there is no central
(one-stop) management of my
    presence information
Yahoo has started
a single service that
 deals with location
There have been
standardisation efforts
  for the status part
    of presence too
So, here is my wishlist:
One place to manage my
 presence information
     consisting of:
1. Availability/Status
2. Location
3. What am I doing
4. Contact preferences/Rules
Based on an open and
 complete standard
Possibility to define
  rules and scenarios
(at the interface level):
e.g. update availability
on the basis of location
Multi-dimensional:
 I can be available
    for my family
and unavailable for
work-related matters
Actionable: e.g. Call x as soon
as he is in Amsterdam and he
 is available for a phone call
Or: Give me a ping when x
    reaches the office
Federated
(think Laconica not Twitter)
So who will make this
    or push for this?

Google? Yahoo? Microsoft?
I have a feeling it
   might be Facebook
(except for the federation)
Consider that a
descriptive prediction
not a prescriptive one!
