real-time conferencing

One of the cooler hacks I've seen on the Web (although not quite as
cool as URLs, HTML, HTTP, and KnowNow's stuff), and it doesn't seem to
be in FoRK-archive yet.

   libdynim demo

libdynim was coded in the night and wee hours of Sat 25 Sep 1999. This
is a demonstration of how text can be typeset and pushed to a web
browser in real time. I think it's the first interactive image
generation on the Web. I'm rather fond of the font; i spent several
hours pixel-editing it and antialiasing it by hand (somehow that can be
perversely addictive).

Real-time conferencing, plain and simple. No downloading. No firewall
or proxy problems. No Java. No requirement for Javascript. No
constantly reloading frames. No dynamic HTML. Yes, it is possible: you
saw it here first.
