Easy as Cake Video Calling

Actually, cake is probably harder. I’ve wanted to poke around with WebRTC for quite a while but just haven’t taken the time. Well, I took a little break from what I’ve been working on today to build a 1:1 video call tool. Given the fracturing of the messaging ecosystem, I thought it would be nice…

AAAll About the Australian Texit #AABill

Sorry about the pun-y name. I had to bring some amount of levity to the situation.

Why I Probably Won’t Answer Your Email
