Bugging Instant Messaging

I just walked by a room full of people working on computers during a break between presentations and over in a corner I saw one fellow furiously instant messaging, his fingers flying across the keyboard in a very animated way. I had a sense of what he might be chatting about and I had this subversive thought: what if I could bug IM conversations?

And as these thoughts go, I couldn't help musing about how one might actually do this.

Well we are here with 400 of our closest friends, with about 350 of us with laptop computers, all on an unsecure wireless network. Hmm. Interesting Rent-a-coder project?
