      Nice video on SignalR. It's actually kind of cool to put a face and voice to David Fowler. We've chatted a lot on both NuGet and JabbR.

      I'm very excited about the types of apps that a library like SignalR not only makes possible but how simple it is to do so.

      signalR really bridges the gaps here. it would be nice to see websocket transport build in to the lib (instead of the requirement to run it in win8 and .net 4.5), but then it's an awkward situation to create a separate websocket implementation here. nontheless, it's very a  cool lib.

      AWESOME stuff! I'd appreciate it though if Brady stopped the useless repetition of  "right", "nice", "wonderful", etc every 5 seconds! Angel

      I appreciate the feedback and will adapt for future interviews. I was pretty excited about this interview, so forgive my enthusiasm for all the topics these guys covered. It was a really great chat, and I hope that didn't detract from the quality of information they put forward.

      Awesome! Just started using SignalR a week ago and it works like magic. Great stuff!
