  Presence
Presence… The very word evokes a sense of depth and potency of character, a gravitas, a charisma based on inner substantiality rather than outward flash, a simple and quiet dignity.
Presence is always available, but by habit, clouded perception, and lack of choice, we are not always available to it.
Presence has several measures: frequency, duration, intensity and depth.[1] Frequency connotes how often we return to ourselves, how often we remember to be within ourselves and make the effort to be present.

  Presence information - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A user's client provides presence information (presence state) via network connection to a presence service, which is stored in what constitutes his personal availabilty record (called a presentity) and can be made available for distribution to other users (called watchers) to convey his availability for communication.
Presence information has wide application in many communication services and is one of the innovations driving the popularity of instant messaging or recent implementations of voice over IP clients.
The most common use of presence today is to display an indicator icon on instant messaging clients, typically from a choice of graphic symbol with easy to convey meaning, and a list of corresponding text descriptions of each of the states.

Presence is a studio album by English rock band Led Zeppelin, released by Swan Song Records on March 31, 1976 (see 1976 in music).

True presence, where everybody who needs to contact you knows where you are and what you're doing, is years off and requires surmounting a host of technical, business and behavioral challenges.

 Being There: The Subjective Experience of Presence
This manuscript offers a subjective explanation of presence in which the yardstick to measure presence is applied not to assessing how closely a virtual world mimics real world sensations, but instead to analyzing the kinds of evidence a virtual experience provides to participants which help convince them they are there.
The basic premise is that experiencing your own presence in VR is like the process of discerning and validating the existence of self in the natural world (which humans have engaged in since birth).
Environmental presence refers to the extent to which the environment itself appears to know that you are there and to react to you.

 Works for Me: The future of presence - CNET reviews
But the concept of presence that is inherent to IM can also exist in other forms of communication.
Caller ID is a baby step toward bringing presence into cell phones, and it shows, as does IM, that it has the value of transferring personal information before you start communicating in earnest.
In a medical setting, for example, the system can automatically display the record of the nearest patient on a doctor's tablet computer, or in a group setting, it can ensure that all the medical personnel in a room are, by default, looking at data about the same patient.

 GigaOM Does Presence really matter? «
Presence helps solve this problem by letting you know the availability of the other party to take your call, before the call gets made.
I believe that presence is more than just on the phone, but on IM, in virtual worlds, and on blogs (although its just an extension of the IM status).
Instead of just showing whether a contact is available or not, it provides the user with “social peripheral vision”: she has a feeling of being closer to her family and friends and is more likely to react to their activities, for example by calling them or sending them a message.

As long as our thinking is governed by industrial, machine-age habit, we will continue to recreate institutions [corporations, schools etc.] as they have been, despite their disharmony with the larger world, and the need of all living systems to evolve.

 “New Presence” and the Voice 2.0 Manifesto -- Alec Saunders .LOG
Presence, today, remains an unfulfilled promise despite the numbers of writers touting it as the future of communications for the better part of three decades now.
Presence as we know it, is largely unfulfilled partly because it’s ubiquity is largely incomplete (my phone is available for ringing, but my AIM id doesn’t know that) as you’ve pointed out.
Presence is not just the enabler of conversation (per your Voice 2.0 manifesto), but the enabler of higher quality conversations that are most relevant and important to me. In essence, presence is one of the key enablers of attention management.

Radical and hopeful, Presence synthesizes leading-edge thinking, first-hand knowledge, and ancient wisdom to explore the living fields that connect us to one another, to life more broadly, and, potentially, to what is "seeking to emerge." Seven capacities underlie our ability to see, sense, and realize new possibilities.
Presence is reflective and discursive, with a lot of forays into philosophical thinking and developments in scientific theory.
The second (Presencing) is identified as the most difficult both to explain and to experience: it is (at least in part) a profound transformation from the deeply inbuilt Western view of the self as operator on an external world to an understanding of our role as one agent in the emergence of an unfolding future.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist
A strictly logical conclusion from the words of promise: "he that eateth me the same also shall live by me", this Totality of Presence was also the constant property of tradition, which characterized the partaking of separated parts of the Savior as a sarcophagy (flesh-eating) altogether derogatory to God.
Indeed the actual manner in which the absence of the bread and the presence of the Body of Christ is effected, is not read into the words of Institution but strictly and exegetically deduced from them.
The latter is the soul's mode of presence in the human body.
