Campfire is getting some major love this morning. Tech Crunch posts the specs. Russell says, too bad its on a dying platform (PC) and bemoans why its not on mobile.

That’s hilarious that Russ calls the PC-based web a dying platform. I’d rahter get a sharp stick in the eye than try to use Campfire on a mobile device with the network latency of a cell phone.
People need to understand that outside of voice, there are very few opportunities beyond the niche.
mobile is still a long way from being all that, but it will get there. i think the apps for pc and mobile are two different beasts and need seperate thinking.
Mobile is great for some things, no doubt, but Russ, come on man, try having a text-based business chat with 5 other people in real-time via t9. Mobile isn’t tuned for everything.
And there’s another kind of mobile: The laptop. Campfire works great on those 😉
the pc is dying? but what about the expected billions of people who are going to be on the net soon? most of them don’t have a fancy shmancy cell phone that surfs the web or t9-happy thumbs.
what I think is really dying is developing software that is only going to run on 1 platform.
