I did a presentation recently about what I do and the technology I use – one of the areas I focussed on was Instant Messaging and its application in my in my day to day work.

I use Adium (and, in the past, Fire) which aggregates all my chat profiles from MSN, Yahoo, Google and AIM into one manageable app. I was surprised with how many of my contemparies were not using IM but also how they never knew such programmes existed.

I chat to people across the globe, some are friends, others are business colleagues, all are invaluable in keeping me sane and focussed. What applications and programmes can’t you do without?
