As the Product Manager for Chrome's WebRTC project and one of the
instigators of the whole WebRTC concept (I even named it WebRTC because
webrtc.org was available), I whole heartedly support Justin's statement.

His statement reflects our whole team's commitment to a thriving
communication platform, open for everyone.
