micronotes: On Google’s Many Talks and Voices

User aclimatt on Hacker News outlines nearly a dozen ways to communicate through Google services.

Are people just searching around on each *.google.com page for a messaging function, regardless of name or utility?

And then there is the Supersonic Fun Voice Messenger.
