There is an interview with our guest Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of Matrix.org over on BlogGeek.me. This Jitsi session is looking to ambitiously join several IRC and audio services and maybe… just maybe some video too!

We’ll be tying together a few different platforms/apps/systems. FreeSWITCH will be associated on the call and the #vuc IRC channel is already bridged to the Matrix IRC. Bring a keg and join us!
