Odigo Continues Fight Against AOL
The makers of the Odigo Messenger service, which has been repeatedly blocked by America Online for interoperating with AOL Instant Messenger, announced today that they would continue to fight the war toward interoperability. AOL fired the first volley blocking Odigo for the first time June 10th. Since then, Odigo has been blocked three more times with fixes available within hours of each block.
"Odigo is committed to providing Internet users interoperability," said Avner Ronen, Odigo VP of Strategic Development. "We have received tremendous feedback from users, partners and other players in the IM community, all supporting our efforts to provide IM accessibility."
