Your Communications System — Taking a Holistic View

Those of you that know me well, know that I am a strange mix of computers, protocols, and ukuleles. I can get as passionate about a 2-5-1 chord progression as I can about software DSPs. In my latest article for No Jitter, I attempt to put my love for music on the same page as […]

It’s chock-full of JavaScript, WebRTC function calls, and HTML code. However, it’s proving to be much bigger and more complicated than I expected. It’s […]

Communications Enabled Business Processes

And now for something completely different. If I’ve learned one thing from my unified communications blog, it’s that I never run of things to write about. While that doesn’t mean that everything I come up with is of interest to everyone, I try to keep things fresh and balance my time between deep-in-the-weeds discussions about […]

WebRTC Blueprints

Anyone who has been following my blog will know that WebRTC has become my latest passion. I’ve written four or five articles on the subject and have at least ten more inside of me waiting to come out. Actually, ten might be an understatement. The deeper I dig, the more I discover that I want […]
