Over the last decade, we've seen a dramatic shift in the way that the web is used. Now, we have more content generated by everyday users than ever before — and that's an exponential increase. We now know thanks to a lot of research that time definitely does equal money, in more ways than one. Initially it was just a reference to developer or human time, then a reference to the page-load speed affecting sales, now we're moving rapidly towards a web where users want to be able to share and communicate in closer to realtime than ever before.
In the past, we've tried to hack together functionality for this, which worked reasonably well, but now we have WebSockets and platforms like Node.js, which make the realtime web ever more accessible to developers. As the public consumption of the realtime web increases, so will users expectations of how quickly things should happen on the web.
