This week’s Vision comes from Emil Ivov, who received a Ph.D. degree while in the Network Research Team at the University of Strasbourg, France.  Emil is well-known for Jitsi (formerly SIP Communicator), as well as other open source projects, such as ice4jjsipfmipv6.org and (less actively in) others.

In 2015, Atlassian acquired Blue Jimp, the mastermind team behind the Jitsi community. This is a quote from their news post:

“Jitsi is an open source project that includes the WebRTC Jitsi Videobridge, among other technologies. The Jitsi Videobridge relays video rather than mixing it which provides improved scale with higher quality and lower latency. These are very good things.”

We talk to Emil while he’s at his walking desk! Topics, dramatic weight loss and the changes he made to achieve it. Randy wrote a book, Real Men Stay Fit: 101+ Simple Tips available at most Amazon stores. We also talk about privacy beyond Facebook and the invasion (or not) of smart home devices. How Google Lens kept insisting photos taken in Bordeaux were famous Paris landmarks. The usual suspects!

Meet Lorenzo Miniero, a well-known denizen of conferences on WebRTC, to be seen and heard in Europe at OpenSIPS Summit, and Kamailio World. and in Europe’s friendly neighbor, the United Kingdom, at CommCon.

He’ll be speaking about the different activities the Meetecho team is carrying on, especially with respect to scalability, monitoring/troubleshooting, and new WebRTC stuff. He’ll also share some news from the latest Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting, which he streamed just last week.
