You know I have been meaning to blog about Mike Tribolet speaking
at Internet Telephony Conference & Expo
for a while but got sidetracked with a million things. As luck would have it I am going to be on the road tomorrow – I thought I would be out today. But back to Mike, this is one of the first speaking opportunities Mike will have since Vonage has gone public and since he has been promoted to President.
I am sure there will be many questions answered by Mike Tribolet at the show and I can’t wait for this keynote which will take place 10:30 to 11:00 on Thursday, January 25th 2007 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Mike is a veteran of the VoIP industry and perhaps is best known for working at DialPad Communications. As you may recall DialPad is a part of Yahoo! now and they were way ahead of the VoIP curve. At the company’s peak they had somewhere near 20 million subscribers using their service for PC to phone calls.
The company’s flaw (like just about everyone else) was they thought they would be able to sell ads to monetize their growth. This didn’t happen and we know about the post-bubble issues. I am digressing but Mike has certainly seen the riches to rags to riches story live in his career. I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say.
There is just so much speculation about this company. The best way to hear what the future of Vonage is will be coming to the show.
