Folks who were around during the beginning of instant messaging will remember ICQ, which set the standard for instant messaging back then. AOL acquired Mirabilis, the Israeli-based company who came up with the program, back in 1996 for $407 million, and now the company has decided to let it go for $187.5 million to Russian investment company, Digital Sky Technologies. Do you still think fondly of ICQ, or are you happy to move to other options such as Gtalk and Windows Live Messenger?

Press release.
