Using XMPP for our internal chat network

As a company that supports free software and an open, decentralized Internet, we often find ourselves at odds with dominant Internet paradigms. While cloud services might have lower startup costs and less technological or usability barriers, we often compromise our ideals and our needs. For example, to fill a need for company-wide communication, we've had to augment our project management software with a combination of personal Google Talk accounts and text messaging to share our work status with each other. We wanted to figure out how to enhance our communication, and ended up with our own XMPP server.
