Hunter Newby and Effective Youtube Use

July 23, 2008

Have you taken a look at the excellent way that Hunter Newby and telxGroup has used Youtube? It's all about the customers and friends, not telxGroup, refreshing. They are one of the first in the IP communications industry to effectively capitalize on the value of online video via Youtube. They've interviewed Vic Bozzo, Tesh Durvasula, Shrihari Pandit, Scott Charter, Jim Diestel, Eric Shepcaro, Bill Kosnik, George Eichelberger, Peter Petronzi, Patrick Tata, Jean Gottscha, Kevin Coyne, myself and more.

Beware of the Jabberwocky: Chargebacks

July 22, 2008

Credit card fraud and chargbacks are a number one nuisance and detractor from "monetizing IP communications." The FBI's Financial Report to the Public for 2007 report losses of $52.6 billion, affecting 9.91 million Americans alone. (Quoting Redif)

According to a recent survey of 112 DIDX members (wired and wireless carriers and mashups) 39% said that online credit card fraud is a major obstacle to realizing their financial potential.

Will ASUS Eee PC Laptop Replace My Purse?

July 20, 2008

My colleague Rehan Ahmed (also our company CTO and Chief Product Architect) told me a few weeks ago, "You've got to get an Asus Eee laptop." 

I've been using a D620 Dell Latitude for a couple years, and anyone who knows me ... will know that I stick with things until they are gone, i.e., my 1994 Toyota Camry (manual transmission with nice sports fin and tinted windows). So, it was tough to spend the $ and to add another PC to my stash.

But hmm... it's voIP-enabled from the start with Skype preinstalled...

El-Mohri on IP Communications Events and Dialexia

July 18, 2008

I love interviews, when it's me interviewing others...

Dialexia, who make IP communications work (that really is their maxim), is unique and non-traditional in many ways. Unlike other company directors' typical title pairing, Mohamed El-Mohri is the CTO and President and his partner Ahmed Aina is the CEO.
 
Ahmed joined from MediaSoft Telecom, which was a CTI tools developer, as CFO (sold to Bell).  Mohamed was a service provider since 1998 using H323 platforms.

July 16, 2008

Hajimemashite (honorable first time greeting in Japanese) nihao, assalamalaykum, bonjour, hallo, shalom and hello in your first language! Can we get "IP Communications" officially listed in Wikipedia? Query "IP Communications" on Wiki and get redirected to "Internet Protocol."

I just asked some industry and non-industry friends on Facebook for examples of IP communications.
