“We are Not Killing Instant Messenger” Says AOL

Not so dead after all

A bunch of media outlets (ourselves included) had reported that the sacking of a AOL IM’s developers late last week was the beginning of the end for the instant messaging service.  AOL fired back and said, “No way, not us!”

An AOL spokeswoman reported to Computerworld yesterday that AOL IM will “continue to evolve”.  A source close to the company confirmed that Jason Shellen, who was the head honcho of the AIM product group, is indeed leaving the company.

Correct me if I’m wrong but how does one expect their software to “evolve” without developers?
