Google Talk Chatback

This is a feature that I wanted: Google TalkĀ“s blog has announced a new feature called Google Talk ChatbackThis feature is similar to a live chat box that you can add to any web page and chat with anyone via your Google Talk or Gmail account. Google calls the feature “chatback” and it allows anyone, even without a Google Talk account, to talk to you via your Google Talk account.

Actually I wanted a slightly different feature, that is the ability to start a conversation with my web page/blog visitors. Is there a way to do so?
