In case you are wondering what I’m drinking today…

We’ll see how this goes but Web 2.0 and AJAX is slowly changing the face of the Internet so it only makes sense that it changes the face of Vivi’s Wine Journal.

We’ve added live chat to Vivi’s Wine Journal! Powered by Meebo, a universal Web-based IM front end, you can now chat with either Kelly or myself (I’m a bigger tool so probably me) about whatever’s on your mind in realtime. On the left side of the blog you’ll notice the “Wine Chat”. I’m using Meebo to manage my IM sessions. This has a couple of HUGE advantages – many IM clients, zero loading time, and I can use it from any PC I’m sitting at. Recently funded by Sequoia Capital, Meebo is giving IM a Web 2.0 update and I applaud the effort LOUDLY.

Give it a try!

I think Vivi’s is headed in an interesting direction. I’ve always shyed away from wine reviews and tasting notes and stuck to reviewing and talking about other things about “The Wine Life”. There are many many ways the technologies I’m exposed to everyday in my career since leaving MIT and living in Silicon Valley that can change the face of the wine industry. I’m going to spend a bunch of time looking at them and create a bit of a resource for Wine Technology that helps the wine community interact. Because, after all, everyone who loves wine, regardless of experience level, is on a journey that rivals the journey of trying to master Golf. I’ve always reviewed gadgets and trinkets so this isn’t too off the current mission for Vivi’s Wine Journal. But I think I’ll concentrate on this area for a few months here and see how it goes.

For now, let’s chat!

Enjoy the Wine Life!
