Websites can be realtime with the magic of technologies (like node.js, websockets and more!), but the web is bigger than any single website, and the web is not realtime today.
Open protocols like XMPP and PubSubHubbub help make the web itself realtime by federating data between different entities, structures and websites in realtime.
Julien Genestoux is the founder of Superfeedr.com. Superfeedr fetches and parses RSS or Atom feeds on behalf of its users and then pushes the new entries into the feeds. It is now the leading realtime feed provider on the web and hosts the vast majority of PubSubHubbub hubs. Julien is a strong open web advocate and will push (pun intended) anyone to use standard protocols rather than custom made APIs. Before founding Superfeedr, Mr. Julien Genestoux created Jobetudiant.net, the leading job board for students in France and was named by Business Week among the 15 top young European Entrepreneurs.

Drake will talk about what it takes to build, MapAttack, a truly real-time location-based geofencing game. Challenges and limitations, advantages and disadvantages will be discussed.
He'll also discuss the technology behind MapAttack, including Sinatra Synchrony for Ruby, which he built specifically for the Geoloqi's geofencing game MapAttack. He'll also cover what it took to build Geoloqi's real-time streaming API and how it can be used to bring real-time location functionality to existing applications.
Kyle Drake is a software engineer at Geoloqi. Drake helped build Geoloqi's real-time location-streaming API, and he developed the Sinatra Synchrony framework for Ruby specifically for MapAttack, a real-time location-based urban geofencing game built on the Geoloqi platform.
He also developed some of the top Facebook applications as a senior Facebook app developer at Dachis group in Portland, Oregon.
The structure of web applications is changing. Requirements are changing, technologies are changing, and most importantly user expectations are changing.
Realtime is part of a larger shift in the structure and design of web applications. The old patterns we used for previous generations of applications will not hold up and we need to move on to something new.
Mikeal writes code, he used to work at Mozilla, CouchOne, and Yammer. He has a new thing he can't tell you about or else he'd have to kill you. Mikeal contributes to node.js and writes many widely used node.js modules and is the curator of NodeConf.

We live on the unexplored frontier of the real-time web. Current applications inspire and amaze, but new ideas and products are still waiting to be discovered and built. Current tools make it easier to do what is already possible, but how will we accomplish what is today considered impossible?
How will we build a web-based MMORPG or a first person shooter? How will we handle data exchange when every part of our app is a collaborative experience? How will we deal with combinations of future real-time services that must all work together?
In this talk, I'll introduce some ideas that may be helpful for the next generations of applications.
