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 https://t.co/b6cjR2tSuU pic.twitter.com/V09Fl7EPMx

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.
