.NET libraries for writing your own messenger bot

I do not use Instant Messaging as much as some of my friends but I can imagine several services that would be useful via IM. There are endless opportunities when you consider that IM can offer push as well as pull services.

It looks like I am not the only one as there are several open source .NET libraries for working with Microsoft Messenger:

  • DotMSN 2.0 supports the MSNP9 protocol.

  • MSNPSharp extends DotMSN 2.0 with support for the MSNP11 protocol.

I am busy working on several other hobby projects at the moment but I would love to put together a IM bot later this year. What kind of services you would like to access via IM?
