MCM Telecom's Daniel Reyes Wedding Party in Acapulco

September 18, 2008

I must share a couple videos of one of Mexico's most successful CLECs... Megacable Telecomunicaciones C.V. de S.A... Daniel Reyes and his lovely bride Alejandra. I met Daniel through Event Mingle at Spring VON 2006 in San Jose when he along with a few dozen others answered my conference request to find voIP industry persons (MCM Telecom, Belgacom, Acmepacket, DIDX...) to run with me every morning. 

See our video on Youtube trying to get more to join us running with some accidental biz dev thrown!

Two years later I was a part of one of the most exciting wedding weekends ever of Daniel and Alejandra in Tequesguitendo at the Jardin del Largo.

Bionic Arm, SSUE students including Ali Imtiaz

August 16, 2008

There were over 100,000 registered attendees at ITCN Asia 2008 and at least 125 exhibitors spread over three halls. The Karachi Expo Center was filled with energy, innovation, debate, and collaborations. Our company walked away with new business development in Pakistan, China, USA, UK, UAE, and more. 

One of the highlights of my booth visits was the bionic arm project by Ali Imtiaz and other students at SSUE. (I will try to come back and revise this post with the full name of the university.) What was unique about it?
