Free-RTC -- Free real-time-communications discussion list


About Free-RTC
English (USA)

Discussion of genuinely free and open standards and software for real-time communications (RTC), including VoIP, instant messaging, social networking and collaborative technologies.

If you only want to receive major announcements about this topic, please join the mailing list instead.

The focus of the discussion is making these technologies finally work together to become the dominant paradigm, displacing the proprietary, walled-garden paradigm of Skype, Facebook, Yahoo, etc. RTC Quick Start Guide
