New name, moved to SourceForge

IAMB, formerly called Talk, has made two fairly major changes this month.

First, we changed the name. Now, if we had taken more than a few minutes to think about it, we would have realized at the beginning that the name 'talk' was already taken. And taken by a very well-known, widespread application. Another victim of "it seemed like a good idea at the time", the name "Talk" has been changed to "IAMB", which stands for "I Am a Message Board." The name additionally appeals to us because of it's punny qualities. Pronounced "I Am", the name is somewhat recursive. (Perhaps it stands for "I Am, Message Board!") Additionally, an iamb is a term from poetry. It's a kind of metrical foot, if that means anything to you.

The second major change is that development has moved from talk.rcbowen.com to SourceForge, where we have more of the resources that are useful when developing a software product.

Please feel free to join the mailing list, join the development team, and participate in an exciting project.
