Why I Still Want Sandy

I have to admit I have been neglecting Sandy lately but back at the turn of the year for a few months she proved invaluable. She became even more valuable when she integrated herself into both Windows Live Messenger and Twitter.

Now comes some good and bad news delivered via Twitter of course. The bad: Sandy and (Stikkit) are to close on 8 December, the IP being bought by Twitter. The good: the lead Sandy developer, Rael Dornfest, is joining the Twitter team and I expect to see some Sandy-like features in Twitter soon.

Happy holidays, Sandy, you deserve it.
