I don't know if Google's new chat client is going to catch on like wildfire but if you decide to give it a whirl I've added it to my Adium buddy list along with all the other usual services. If you want to add me as a buddy, my email address is rmcreynolds (at) gmail.com. And in the interest of completeness, you could also use AIM (RLMcRey), ICQ (291510719), MSN Messenger (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Yahoo! (ryanmcreynolds). I'm polymessageable.
