AIM Is (Unofficially) Dead

Gizmodo links to this report from Nick Bilton (via Peter Maurer):

The AOL Instant Messenger group took the deepest cut so far. A former AOL employee said the group was “eviscerated and now only consists of support staff.” This person, who asked not to be named because they were not allowed to speak publicly about the company, added that “nearly all of the West Coast tech team has been killed.”

Somehow I find this more surprising than Encyclopaedia Britannica going out of print.
