VoIP Peering

February 21, 2005

Please check my blog often this week as I will detail the "Can't Miss" sessions from the show. In addition I will be detailing what you need to know at the show and how to best benefit from the intense and in-depth educational experience. What amazes me about Internet Telephony Conference & Expo is how the conference and general sessions at this event truly capture the essence of what is important in our industry. We really haven't missed any important trend.

What's up at ITEXPO?

Escape to Miami for ITEXPO

February 20, 2005

As another cold front hits the New England I am on my way to Miami where the weather is projected to be nice and sunny. I checked the attendee database and registrations are still pouring in for our Internet Telephony conference next week.

Planning a show is a great deal like planning a wedding but 10-20 times larger and you don't have a clear idea of how many people are coming until they show up. Sure you have a registration database but that could literally double the week of the show as people often wait to the last minute to make plans.
I am putting the final touches on my VoIP 2.0 presentation today and can't wait to share it with the audience. I have had a great deal of positive feedback on the concept of VoIP 2.0 and I am looking forward to taking this discussion to the next level.

I wish you all a safe trip down to Miami and look forward to greeting you in person at the event.




iMag ------ Nificant

Without question, Apple is an amazing company. They started their wildest ride decades ago by popularizing desktop publishing. I was the person who brought desktop publishing to TMC around 1986-1987 and at the time it was sacrilegious to even think about using a PC for his task.

I saw no future in MACs (at least in the long-term) so I didn’t bother purchasing any of these cute little computers. Over the decades, countless artists and editors who love Macs would implore us to get them a Mac. I always said no.

Just Say No To Verizon and MCI

February 19, 2005

The more I think about the Verizon and MCI deal the more I realize this acquisition is not in the best interest of consumers. Verizon is a very strong company and controls the best national wireless network as well as being a very strong ILEC. Getting a hold of MCI's network and customers will make them much stronger and a very powerful force in the market. They will be tough to compete with and as such will have no incentive to lower prices which is always good for consumers.

When regulators look at Wal-Mart they see a company that is becoming more of a monopoly everyday but is lowering prices so dramatically that they can only be seen as good for consumers.

ITEXPO Now 70 Countries Strong!

My wife is from Argentina and her family went to Punta Del Este every summer. Kind of like us east-coasters going to the Hamptons. I have been there; it is beautiful. It is part of Uruguay actually, the next county over from Argentina.
