RealTimeWeekly #70


09 Mar RealTimeWeekly #70

We have a lot of interesting content this week – from Google’s PubSub announcement, to the latest on WebRTC from Google, a great video tutorial on building real time web apps, recording WebRTC video and audio streams, and more. Plus we’ve added a new “Articles” section to, and the first two articles are included here: an interview with Alan Quayle about TADHack and a post on Orfeo Morello’s GLIR-UP WebRTC based secure “server within a browser” service.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about our new site – please send them to me! And of course, as always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at

Thanks for reading!
