So, justin.tv (a week-old streaming 24/7 videolog) is having some teething issues related to scaling. Â Spent a wonderful couple hours at the justin.tv apartment talking with Emmett, Michael, Justin and eventually Kyle too. Â The overall conclusion is that the current AJAX+proxy chat has to go, to be replaced by an XMPP based flash chat (which is nice since it will be embeddable). Â For now, until something better comes along, the website will be balanced via Pound, and continue to run on lighty+Rails.Â The Amazon EC2 grid is holding strong for hosting, and S3 is ideal for storing the archive of FLV movies.
So, a productive evening! Â Thanks guys, and I’ll see you tomorrow at 8pm for poker .. woot!
