Now that Liferay has developed a Sync client, perhaps an alert (or notification) client is also possible. It would be useful to be able to send alerts (notifications) to users. These alerts could be targeted to specific users much like the existing Alerts portlet. Ideally, the user would not be required to be logged into the portal (or even have an open browser) in order to receive such alerts. Clicking the alert in the system tray might then launch the client's default browser and direct them to the appropriate Liferay page.

Interesting!

A farther conclusion would be to simply create a full communications client so that it could integrate chat as well as such messaging. Since there is a messaging/alerts management framework being worked on in the portal, to unify all this, making a client of it would be clever.
