I’ve been very excited since I first heard about it, that Firefox Hello is based on an open web standard and Google Chrome is due to support it.
From Firefox, I can start a voice or video chat session by logging into Firefox to access my contact list (BOTH people!) or stay anonymous and email the link to someone.
However, I’ve been thinking about how you would schedule a time-specific meeting and I think the person who created the link would have to keep their session live until the meeting happened. I now notice that the technology is described as “enabling” and companies like Oracle are creating session management services to be the meeting point. Is this a project that anyone in the Birmingham.io community would be interested in?
What if Brum was a good virtual place to meet on the Internet? Imagine if a meeting was scheduled with a list of contacts then a link was shared a short time before the meetng was due. WIth my almost complete lack of web understanding, that doesn’t sound hard or processor intensive but I could be wrong.
