IM Bots have caught my interest this morning as I spend a significant time IMing or connected to IM (with my new Treo). My mind is racing with the possiblities. IM would make a very nice messaging platform for standard applications. I am thinking about BAM applications with integrated notifications. Alot of this stuff is written in Perl. Either way here is some links to stuff:

Still trying to find some sample AIM bot code for .Net.... Ahah! found it VB6 only it seems:
Although AIM kinda sux because people just warn the crap out of yoru bot disabling it.
