The End Of Cables

June 27, 2005

Is this indeed the end of cables as we know it? WiFi is great and all and I can’t live without it. In fact, every day I wonder how I lived without it. But WiFi  -- even in its 54 Mbps variant is not fast enough for the myriad applications we would all really like to throw at the standard.

Amazon Aquarium

June 26, 2005

I found a great underwater video stream of an Amazon aquarium. It captured my daughter's attention for a few minutes and I think if there was a sound feed as well it would be even better. The feed is a bit slow but there are some great fish in this display.

Here is an excerpt of what is happening in the aquarium:

Prosody X Rated

June 24, 2005

I really like this e-mail marketing campaign from Aculab. What amazes me is that it is coming from an English company who describe themselves as conservative. They must think they have something really great on their hands to break the mold and come out with a new campaign that is so edgy. I have learned at TMC that when you live on the edge you sometimes can go too far.

We are elated to have a high level keynote from Intel at our upcoming VoIP Developer conference in South San Francisco August 2-4, 2005. I hope to see you there as Intel’s Michael Stanford graced the show with an amazing keynote last year and introduced the audience to the term “ambient telephony“ which I have been reiterating to the mainstream press any chance I get.

Here is Michael Stanford’s photo and a bio:
