Tech Rock Star Jamie Siminoff Keynotes Startup Camp Telephony

Jamie Siminoff is someone I have great admiration for… He launched a company called SimulScribe which later became PhoneTag and what it did was transcribe your voicemails and send them via email. As far as I am concerned voicemail is useless without receiving it transcribed in an email with an attached MP3 file. You mean you still listen to your voicemails?? You use a phone? Seriously?

Jamie sold his company to Ditech Networks and now launched PoketyPoke (how it works), a company solving yet another problem we all have… It calls you when you have a conference call and automatically dials you in  . You just send your conference call confirmation email to PoketyPoke and it figures out how to reach you and dial into the conference bridge.

I have been meaning to try the service but with ITEXPO and myriad collocated events rapidly approaching next week, I haven’t had time.

But I better get moving because Jamie will be there, at the show — at the collocated Startup Camp Telephony put on in partnership with Larry Lisser. In fact Jamie is keynoting – Yeah!

Jamie is young for someone who has accomplished so much and his boundless bright-eyed energy coupled with what he calls his ADD makes for an interesting combination… I just can’t imagine how much more interesting he will be when we put him on a stage with bright lights.

Trust me — you should be just as interested in finding out. Be there on January 21st at 6:00 PM at the Miami Beach Convention Center to see for yourself. Details.

    We started a phone company (www.TalkBoxMe.com) just to show Vonage how it should be, with a focus on customers paying less and getting more. Our voice quality worldwide is the highest available.
    Our growth has been viral, mostly word of mouth and Vonage refugees. It’s because we have no hidden fees, no credit checks, no long-term contract and it’s all billed month-to month. We have five stores in Los Angeles to help our customers feel connected with their phone company. Our TV ad was banned because Ma Bell complained. See it on YouTube at

    We’re so confident that you’ll see the difference that we guarantee our service for 30 days. Get 10% Off with Discount Code 10STEFAN
