A computer-implemented process facilitates communication with an entity
over a network. A static HTTP URL is associated with the entity.
Communications information reflecting the entity's current online
presence including the entity's dynamic session information as determined
using the HTTP protocol is linked with the URL. Communication with the
entity is facilitated using the URL and the communications information.
The forms of communication facilitated include type chat/instant
messaging, voice communication over a computer network, video
communication over a computer network, voice communication from a
computer network to a telephone network and two-way text messaging to
Internet enabled wireless devices.
