A wise man once told me that I shouldn’t worry about banking the money. Instead, he said, bank people for in the end they will truly enrich your life. It was great advice and I have followed it to the tee. It was brought home to me yesterday with all the birthday messages and all the fantastic emails, phone calls and letters.

My mom and dad’s birthday card, my baby brother’s short and sweet text, my nephews and nieces text messages, plus amazing words of love from Matt and all of you my friends. I am truly grateful to have all of you in my life. I am richer because of your presence. Looking forward to spending more time with you – whether in person or virtually in the years to come.

Thank you for all your love,

Hello there! I have been missing in action for the past week or so, for mostly personal reasons. I have been thinking about today – the day when I turn 50 and enter the sixth decade of my life. I am supposed to say something profound, but I don’t really have much to say. I don’t feel the tick-tock of the clock. I don’t feel the middle age creeping on me. I feel like rest of my life’s learnings are ahead of me. 

I do sometimes feel that I should sleep more. And that I should spend even more time on things I love. Apart from that, I feel no different today than I did yesterday, or that day when I first fell in love with the Internet. Or that day when I came home to find not fame, fortune but a lifetime of adventure.

I have a handful of ideas and I want to pursue them. Perhaps this is a good year to chase those frontiers. Regardless, I am glad you all have been part of my life.

Video Streaming! CDN! Sure webRTC can do that!

Peer5 is built on WebRTC, a real-time communication protocol from Google that’s part of HTML5, meaning support for Peer5’s technology is built into every version of Chrome, Opera, Edge, Firefox, and more. Apple’s building it into Safari. Google Hangouts is based on it.

Peer5, an Israel-based server-less CDN company, is going to be helping DailyMotion in distribution of videos. This is a big deal for webRTC technology. I am big believer and that is why invested in, a company based in Helsinki, Finland.
