VoIP Sizzles Night 1

July 20, 2005

The opening night at VoIP Sizzles was great. We just had a Sip Margarita reception where we learned about --- Surprise --- SIP. There were some great speakers telling us about the standards issues that need to be worked out in the SIP community. There was some discussion of the telco/cable duopoly and what they will do to thwart competition and how this could hurt the industry.

There was further talk of IMS and how much promise it holds and how it could be used by service providers to provide poor service or no service to competing services.

The mood was positive overall as examples kept popping up regarding how the VoIP community continually innovates and stays one step ahead of those who try to thwart us.

Reasearh On E-Mail, Etc

July 20, 2005

Something about the Radicati Group's releases about their research reports makes me want to comment about them. Perhaps the little snippets of info they give out. My comments are in red:

Please find below The Radicati Group, Inc.'s "Radicati Market Stats & Industry Commentary". Here you will find some fast facts from our various reports and analyst quotes on recent industry news which you may feel free to use for citing in upcoming articles.

 ANTI-SPYWARE

The installed base of corporate anti-spyware will grow from 16 million users in 2005, to nearly 541 million users in 2009 - an average annual growth rate of 146%.

If this is true, we are in trouble.

Key Logging

July 18, 2005

Tom Cross does some excellent work over at TECHtionary. Here is a recent entry into his extensive database on keylogging. To further the plug, advertising on his site or licensing his library are two ways to support his excellent efforts to educate many of us on technology via animation and simple to understand definitions.

TECHtionary Responds to ABC News Special Report – Key Loggers

The animated TECH-Tip tutorial is available at http://www.techtionary.com

Last night a special report on ABC News identified key loggers as "causing at least one-third of all online crime." This is a special TECHtionary report on this insidious crime. To begin with, keylogging, VoIP phone keypad trackers, keyboard sniffers, system monitors, loggers and trackers are programs that monitor every keystroke and data flow to and from the keyboard.

New TMCnet is Coming

July 16, 2005

I was just checking out Alexa's home page and found that 45% of all web traffic is accounted for by the top 500 sites in the world. This by the way is out of 18 million total sites Alexa crawla. The top 100,000 sites in the world are responsible for 75% of all web traffic.

TMCnet was recently ranked in the top of 4,000 sites in the world by Alexa and on some days we rank just over 2,000.

Our ranking in this elite group of websites is due to loyal readers like you. We appreciate the millions of people a year that come to TMCnet for news and analysis in communications and technology.

Consumer Digest Article

July 15, 2005

Consumer Digest was nice enough to ask me to write and article for them about VoIP. It was a great deal of fun to do. I received an e-mail from one of their editors named James Tehrani (no relation – that we are aware of anyway) asking if I could write something geared towards consumers and very objective.

I had a great deal of fun and saw how the editorial process in another publishing company works which is always interesting. Their editorial staff is first rate and I have a great deal of respect for the magazine.

Check out the August 2005 issue… the one with the 2006 Sneak Peak cover.



Airplane Cell Phones

July 15, 2005

We are living in a converged world and I am just a converged guy. "The last thing most air passengers want is to be forced to listen to their neighbor chat on their cell phone about their ailments, their dating problems, the latest reality TV show or up-to-the-minute estimates of time of arrival," says Rep. John Mica, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure's subcommittee on aviation. Today his panel was discussing whether we should have cell phones on flights. Perhaps Blackberries should be allowed but not phones was one of the discussion points.
