Windows Live contacts: website integration

Wow.  I must be psychic!  No sooner than I blog about how cool Meebo is, that we announce an add on which allows third party websites to access Messenger contact lists.  I’m spooked.  The article explains how the gadget (which works client side) works with your contact address and provides a service.  You don’t need to type in the contact address again, as its pulled from your Live contacts information.  Have a play at mapping your US and Canada contacts.  That’s a really good demo of a mashup by the way…

And you keep control of the information.  That’s neat..
