"When we launched the NERDS> II network in September last year, we
demonstrated how video technology should be implemented on the Internet,
via the use of a single point of access." - Kyle Lamb, NERDS> Editor
The NERDS> II communication & sharing tools, supported the community based
around them, are changing the way we approach and use the Internet. NERDS> was
founded as a means for interactive discussion. Today NERDS> II is a live society.
This trial period over the last six months has proved a success, particularly
with the broadband users. We're going to continue this trial, as we implement a change
in network topology and scale up our systems.
The current trial uses central servers to relay and join video and audio streams
between users. Like all other text-based messaging. Unfortunately, this isn't a scalable
model. We are currently building a 'peer to peer' client, based around the NERDS> II
technology and facilities.
If you have experience with real time or distributed systems, we are cycling
about 100 users each month, so you can see the demo in action. We value any
ideas for further development or improvement.
