CoreDial is among those cool IP / cloud communications companies who are co-sponsoring the ITEXPO West All Conference Party 9:00pm at Cedar Street Courtyard – Featuring the Famous Spazmatics!!

In that time the company has experienced exponential growth and is known as a highly respected disruptive force in our highly volatile communications landscape.

I'm talking about collaborative/competitive activities such as golf or bowling, All Conference Parties, receptions, Fun Runs, and city tours of unique and innovative technology in use.

Mercedes-Benz Technologies and Driver Safety versus Autonomy

September 12, 2012

Working for a Canadian company AstraQom on a one year contract in their marketing program has been a cultural and technological joy for this Floridian. I visited Ottawa twice, once with a side trip to Gatineau Bier Fest and the Ottawa Running Races in May, since mid-July 2011. I also visited with city officials and business owners about their communications needs and ways for AstraQom to make a good difference in the community. I also wrote a blog post comparing the way people sell voIP and the way they sell cars which led me to start a series of audio podcasts with Mr. Jeff Mierins, owner of Star Motors, Dow Honda and other dealerships in Ottawa.

September 4, 2012






























The Teachers' Lounge is a place I never hung out in when I taught English to 8th graders for 15 or so years. I'm not tight with the people who like to talk IP communications International Enquirer gossip, but I do pay attention to knowledge and experience that coders, evangelists, early adopters and potential customers of open source telephony, VoIP and such ... post that they want and that they have.
