This article is disappointing becuase it doesn't
actually say anything. There is nothing interesting
about this combination of ssh and ytalk. ssh can run command line and curses programs. UNIX and Linux can allow multiple people to log into a machine. ytalk can let multiple people on a machine (or on a LAN) talk chat with one another.

It is then obvious that we can set up a machine with accounts on it so people can ssh to it and all right ytalk to one another. So what?

It might have been more interesting to look at the MIT/Athena Zephyr chat system, or Jabber over SSL
