Carly Fiorina Keynotes ITEXPO

June 30, 2005

Internet Telephony Conference & Expo is known worldwide as the leading event in VoIP attracting the largest audience from the most countries. Continuing in that tradition, we have added Carly Fiorina to the list of keynoters at the show. Why Carly? Well in a word, there is no other person we could think of that was the number two person at Lucent, worked at AT&T (yes they were once the same company) for decades, was the CEO of HP, purchased Compaq and to top it off sat on the board of Cisco.

Carly Fiorina There is a wealth of relevant experience in this woman and she will share it with you when you come to ITEXPO in Los Angeles later this year.

I am especially happy to say that that at the time of this writing, Carly is not working for HP or any other company and subsequently has no agenda to push, company to promote, etc.

People tell us all the time that Internet Telephony events have some of the most objective conferences around and I personally feel that Carly will continue this tradition and provide valuable insight on the future of VoIP.









Jamster Crazy Frog

June 29, 2005

I love the English and my grandparents used to live in the UK when I grew up, allowing me to spend summers at Hyde and Regent’s Park. Fun times I tell you. But when you think of Independence Day and America’s departure from our English roots, you start to wonder what we are missing since we have become a standalone country.

We all know fish and chips, some of us might even know Harrods and of course everyone knows Big Ben (webcam). But wait, the biggest thing in England right now isn’t any of the above but instead the Crazy Frog ring tone that has caught the country by surprise to become the biggest hit in recent memory.

Who would of thought that we would ever see a headline such as Crazy Frog keeps U2 from top of charts?

More on Brand X

June 28, 2005


I expected to come in today and blog about how yesterday’s Brand X decision is so terrible for consumers. I am trying to be open minded but the I don’t like the argument. Cable companies and ILECS have built companies based on monopolies that were sanctioned. Using this revenue they are now investing in newer networks.

Brand X Loses

June 27, 2005

Depending on your perspective, today’s ruling on the Brand X case is either good or bad. If you are a cable company that has invested in infrastructure, you are happy you will not have to share your lines. Of course this is bad for consumers. The FCC said that broadband over cable was an information service back in March of 2002 meaning that cable companies would not have to share their internet connections with other ISPs. Today the Supreme Court agreed with the FCC in the famous Brand X case.

Next up is DSL and phone companies want to make sure there is no competition over these lines either.
