glancing ? mmmh, might be the most useless part of software I have ever seen, funny yes, and a bit scary ( lots of animated eyes watching me work ...shudder ) yes, useful....

Nah, I can see its usefulness, definitely. It takes the intentionality out of instant messaging - working on a collaborative project, you might want to see how your colleagues are doing, but not get into a full-on conversation with them (even idle small talk is effort-consuming -- you're committing yourself to a conversation even if it's just a 'hey how are ya?').

As a standalone application, however, it is flimsy - it would be better as a plug-in or something for pre-existing software, or as an update.
