Lost AIM: end of an era

Lost AIM: end of an era

For those of us of a certain digital generation, this is a sad announcement:

All good things come to an end. On Dec 15, we'll bid farewell to AIM. Thank you to all our users! #AIMemories

Somewhere on my Mac, I’ve got a folder full of AIM chats, including many with my late mother.

Admittedly, I haven’t used it in years, but I’m still sad to see that era pass.
