With Jaiku Still Down, What Are People Doing?

Jaiku, Google‘s social networking service it acquired last year, has been completely offline since Friday sometime. The rumor is that they will be completely on the Google App Engine after this “upgrade,” though the Google folks haven’t commented on this.

What have my followers been doing without Jaiku? Some of set up camp on Twitter, others are trying the latest upstart, Rejaw (which has a nice web interface), and some are subscribing to my FriendFeed. I don’t feel a huge loss, though I miss the rantings of certain people.

Will Jaiku come back? More importantly, will the community that was there come back when it it does? Only time will tell.

Me? I don’t care.
