OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/06/14 -- One year ago today, the town of Lac-Megantic was devastated by a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.
In the weeks and months that followed, its citizens banded together to grieve, to cope, and to heal. The memories of those who perished still fresh in their minds, they have slowly begun the task of rebuilding their lives and restoring the place they have long called "home."
As daunting as this task may seem, this town will rise again, from the solid foundation of resilience and compassion laid by its people. This is why today I am presenting the Commendation for Outstanding Service to the first responders and citizens of Lac-Megantic and the surrounding communities, as a way of recognizing their extraordinary efforts and exceptional kindness and caring.
On behalf of all Canadians, I offer my renewed condolences and my hopes for a brighter future for all in Lac-Megantic.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data?
