America Online Introduces
Travesty acquires transcript of first 'chat'
|Internet Giant America Online recently released an innovative software product for the corporate world: Business Instant Messenger. No longer will large companies have to wait ten to twelve seconds to communicate via e-mail. Labeled by the New York Times as being "as big as Edison's Phonograph or Gutenburg's Printing Press," the new program allows employees of a business to communicate with one another. Executives can even talk to board members and CEOs of other corporations. The Texas Travesty was fortunate enough to be given a copy of the first conversation held on this innovative chat client in which the head of Universal Studios (BlueCrushSucked) and an executive of Starbucks Coffee (SexyDMBfan) discuss important corporate matters:
BlueCrushSucked: hey dmb fan wazzup this is ted over at the universal studios lot
