We’re working on some improvements to RealTimeWeekly based on the great feedback we received from many of you during our 1 year survey. Thank you!

The first small one of those is that we are going to start tweeting more from @RealTimeWeekly – so please follow us there for real time updates throughout the week!

In this week’s issue we have more commentary on the possible end of the WebRTC codec wars, the adoption of WebRTC by Skype, an Angular/Firebase tutorial, and an interesting new Data Sync product from PubNub.
