Amethyst started as a port of Infobot to POE, continuing as a generic bot core with the ability to handle multiple connections using different protocols (not necessarily IRC) and soft route the incoming messages through a number of processing centres. One of these processing centres contains much of the original Infobot core.

Citadel is an advanced messaging and collaboration system for groupware and BBS applications. Users can connect to Citadel using any telnet, WWW, or client software. Among the features supported are public and private message bases (rooms), electronic mail, real-time chat, paging, shared calendaring, address books, mailing lists, and more. Unlike other collaboration servers, Citadel provides its own data stores and is therefore extremely easy to install; you don't have to "bring your own" email and database because they're built in. The server is multithreaded and scalable. In addition, SMTP, IMAP, and POP3 servers are built-in for easy connection to Internet mail. Citadel is both robust and mature; it has been in production since 1987.
The Floranta AJAX libraries are used to build Rich Client Wikis. Editable sticky notes can be created and positioned over any Web page (even plain HTML), and are capable of behaving as if they stored their entire state in the page. Floranta enables collaborative teamwork and creative activities like cartooning and collage creation, personal notes, ToDo lists, and blogging.
Pipo-BBS allows you to install a BBS server and clients. You can chat via a nice interface with an unlimited number of people (as with IRC). This software is in a pre-release state; it is still very alpha, and can be difficult to even compile. It works under linux, MkLinux, SGI, HP-UX, and Solaris. The only interface for this BBS is telnet for the moment; an interface using GTK has been started. It has been translated into French, English, Spanish and German.
Globe*Trotter is a guestmap. It allows Web site visitors to mark where they live on a map and include their personal comments, instead of merely tacking their personal regards onto the end of a long list. It benefits your visitors because they can easily read other's comments and add their remarks in a fun and novel way. It also benefits you, the webmaster, because more people will be likely to give you feedback and you will be able to see where your visitors are. A free hosted version of Globe*Trotter (with no ads) is available.
