Mark Jeffrey is an author and web entrepreneur, and back in the 90s he developed on of the most popular real-time chat spaces. But the timing wasn't right.

Cut to 2011 - the tech has finally caught up, and Mark thinks we are currently experiencing an explosive resurgence in real-time chat environments.
