AOL vs. AOL, part II

Written by Jari Ketola @ 23 Sep 2000 12:56

Justin Frankel, the man who caused quite a stirr at AOL after creating and publishing Gnutella, the distributed media sharing engine, is at it again.

This time he has created AIMazing, a visualization plug-in for Winamp, which renders graphics on the AOL Instant Messenger display. What makes it somewhat controversial is the fact that it actually draws on the space reserved for advertisements on the AIM-window. AOL doesn't really seem to mind it, though, since they don't have any paid ads on the space.
