iGlance. Super super cool open source IM tech which combines instant push-to-talk with permanent buddy presence via webcam to give a sort of ‘over the fence’ instant messaging. No more relying on a measly icon to notify you when your buddy’s online, just check to see if their face is in the video window. If so, click to talk. Not only that, but you get desktop sharing too. Eat that Skype! [Thanks Tom!]

 With iGlance, you can continue using the same “social tools” you’ve refined for when physically present, but from any internet connection. Peeking over a cubical wall is replaced with glancing at your buddy list. Yelling across the room is push-to-talk. Screen sharing is asking you to sit at my keyboard. Everything is oriented around this central metaphor.

 iGlance.
