Interview VoIP Historians, Haider on Aplio and Net2Phone

August 24, 2009

Remember Aplio and Net2phone? Immerse yourself in Internet telephony history with Haider Ali. Rehan Allahwala (inventor of DIDX and Virtual Phone Line) and I (vice president of Super Technologies and DIDX) interviewed Haider who is a house-hold name in technology in the Middle East and Pakistan. We took advantage of the press room at CommunicAsia in Singapore 2009 where we were media partner. The video interview is on Youtube.

Back in the mid '90s, early technology adopters, both technically savvy and not, became interested in internet telephony. (I was one where I used Vocaltec's Internet Phone in my 8th grade middle school English classroom to augment reading, writing, and speaking in standard English.) 

Haider Ali had a friend who told him about Net2phone, to make calls over the Internet cheap, like 30 cents per minutes, Haider went to New York to meet Jordan Katz about this.

First ever Social Media and VoIP Language Teaching Course

August 16, 2009

"The English language teaching course book called 'English Out There - Intermediate TD4' enables schools, teachers and students to use the internet's free social networks and free internet telephony to make their English learning much more interactive, motivating, practical and inexpensive.

Not only does the first social media English course book challenge publishing convention (though not the latest research) about how people actually learn a second language; the methodology it applies also drastically lowers the financial barrier for millions of schools, teachers and students around the world who would like to integrate highly valuable native speaker practice into every single lesson for free."

(Copied from http://www.prleap.com/pr/138779/. Please read the rest of the article there.)

Social media and internet telephony are also a great combination for improving how one uses one's first language also. That is the real reason I first became interested in voIP and social online media (although it wasn't called that... back then) in 1995.





Allahwala and Vance on Increasing Innovation with Asterisk

August 16, 2009

Rehan Allahwala, CEO of Super Technologies, Inc. and inventor of DIDX and Virtual Phone Line, Greg Vance, of Digium, and I were kind of "think tanking"  in the CommunicAsia conference press room where we thought it would be quiet. Loud in there, but not as loud as the conference exhibition areas, so...

The discussion begins with Asterisk training programs needed in the India, Pakistan and Bangladesh region because of the extreme fertility and plethora of talented engineers. From there, we hear of the need for training partners in the complete APEC region from eastern to western and from northern to southern parts of Asia. Perhaps collaborations at a reasonable price for DCAP certification among universities and Digium?
