What the heck? Twitter group chats are…

I participated in something on twitter the other night. I am not sure exactly what to call it – “twitter group conversation” ? It was based around the hash #leadershipchat. In my tweetdeck, I set up a search for that hash and watched the tweets fly. I’ve been sorting through my experience for the last…

Our first international tests

Well, sometimes a potential customer can also be quite the advocate. We’re working with a fantastic company that has global operations support for CROs. Currently, there is no video solution that supports international, non-dedicated end-point video connectivity. Until working with this company, we’ve focused entirely domestically, which, while fine, is not all we want to…

New server is in! Now can we add more cool stuff please?

Phew – that’s done. We’re tuning it now – but performance is also better just as is.  We’re also moving the scanning process out of the main process to improve application responsiveness at the outset.  It’s a never ending struggle to balance fixes and enhancements with net new functionality. Right now net new has taken…

Letting users in – leading to server upgrade

Since our launch on Wednesday we’ve had a pretty strong response – and we’re starting to see a performance hit (naturally).  So – we’re upgrading to a much more powerful server environment. We should have that done pretty soon and I expect to see a pretty dramatic improvement in performance. Thank you for being patient!

In search of: Centralized ID management for Social Networks

I have always deplored redundancy and inefficiency – it makes me crazy.  It makes my wife crazy that I am so nuts about it – she would rather just have me repeat doing something that have me fuss about it.  But fuss I do. And now we’ve built an application that has redundant data in…

The quality of digital audio

I often remark on the poor quality of digital audio; it drives me nuts.  Having been in the live music world and the digital world, I have always had a hard time with poor audio quality.  There is something profound that happens with sitting inside, or directly in front of an orchestra, or any large,…

320kbps MP3

I have always been fond of higher quality audio files and really dislike compressed audio. The artifacts bother me, the narrow floor and ceiling make classical music almost worthless. CD’s are not as warm as analog in general, but I am willing to sacrifice warmth for lack of noise and accuracy. So when you take…

Platforming – we're getting there

Holy cow! This is exactly where we’re headed for 2.0. We already have some of the architecture in place and now we’re overhauling our reciprocal API to make it work.  I am sure we’re going to encounter significant distributed database issues, but we’ll work through them – we have some great academic resources we’ll tap to…
