Maybe I have been working with WebRTC for too long, but I constantly see use cases for it in my daily life. One of the more recent use cases has to do with my dog, Levy. Levy is an Old English Bulldog. Many years ago, when he was a cute little puppy, we would let him up on the couch. Over the years he has turned into a massive, gassy, dandruffy, shedding beast so we gradually weaned him off this habit in favor of a oversized, ridiculously fluffy doggy bed. He had been hooked on this new amenity for a while, but in the past several weeks he has been sneakily returning to his old habit when we were not home.
webrtcH4cKS: ~ Build your own phone company with WebRTC and a weekend
Maybe I have been working in the communications industry too long, but much of the usual telephone experience seems ridiculously antiquated to me. Using a string of digits as a user address? Anyone can call you for any reason they want whether I know them and want to speak to them or not? Of all of the telephony systems daily nuisances, I find conference calls to be the worst! The process of looking up a random string of digits to dial into a bridge, listen to the same repetitive prompts, and then needing to look up and enter another random string of digits drives me insane every time. I would prefer to just provide a user-friendly URL, like the chadwallacehart.com I own and to make my phone service available when I choose.
