DIDX Shares Video of Weiland Underground Party during ITEXPO West 2008

September 21, 2008

DIDX hosts this great party at Los Angeles' famous Weiland's Brewery and Restaurant Underground during ITEXPO West 2008 where around 50 successful IP communications companies and related field companies met to socialize and discuss new partnerships.  Jenny Callicott of Celtrek videos them describing what's up.

Some of the guests are Jeff Simonton and 2 lovely ladies of Time Warner TW Telecom, Bill Miller of Digium, Rehan Ahmed of DIDX virtually while at Carriers World in London, Angel Investor Val Babajov of Partners 1993, Jenny Callicott of Celtrek filming, Roberto Hernandez of BlueVisor, Douglas Kimani of Accents, Bob Emmerson of TMCNET and Electric-words.org, Peter Radizeski of rad-info.net and tmcnet, Max Schroeder of Faxcore, Rehman Sheikh of Billcall, Dennis Eodice of Alta MediaGroup, Michael Cardillo and Ronda Scheer of Sotel IP Services, Doug Makishima and Farshad Ghazi of D2 Technologies, Rich Tehrani one of the world's most respected IP communications gurus, and more. 

At ITEXPO East 2009 in Miami, we hope to have a party at Lucky Strikes Bowling Alley and Restaurant, a high-end location with great music, food, ambience... last year several enjoyed the spot: GlobalPops, Digium, TMCNET, Celtrek, and others with us. Let us know if you like this idea. It seems much easier to develop business and eventually monetize when you've had a chance to compete athletically and to cheer each other on, right?

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?
