This pleases me immensely. After a heated conversation on FriendFeed, Jyri posted a quick note on the Jaiku blog to let people know that the service isn’t dead, isn’t mothballed, and is being actively developed:
"Also, contrary to some voices out there, we DO have plans for future
development and we will involve our developer community as much as we
can. Just to reiterate, we are working very hard to ensure you have a
useful and usable service. We feel the short term pain, too. Thanks for
sticking with us!"
This is really good news, as I really like Jaiku. Now here’s hoping for an iPhone client in the pipeline, too…
