The Secret Behind the Real Time Web; A Video From Inside FriendFeed

There’s no end of talk about the benefits of the real time web these days, but what’s going on behind the scenes? What do the nuts and bolts look like? Is it standards based code on scalable servers? Is it hyper-active little elves?

FriendFeed product manager Dan Hsiao and company intern Ross Miller released a short video today from deep inside the core of that innovative company that Facebook just paid $50m in cash and stocks to purchase. Now that FriendFeed has had its exit, the staff must feel comfortable opening up a little to the world and letting us see what really goes on there.

We thought it was elves, but this is probably the most scalable solution available. Just snap on more of the same infrastructure and you’re ready to rock and roll.
