Avvasi CEO on Quality Experience High Correlation to Revenue Profitability

October 24, 2011

Why should you and I be interested in the services that Avvasi provides and in particular their launch on the first day of 4GWorld of CONNEXUS, a collaboration of theirs with three other companies?

Here's my own experience.

Last week, my son and I entertained his children with our family bluegrass music favorites from Youtube and Boogie Maths videos on his smart phone. At a birthday party for a best friend, we couldn't remember the name of the band who sang "O-o-h Child" and found a video online with the answer, "The Five Stair Steps." I cannot even count the number of times that I and my 100s of 1000s of industry friends, customers, and vendors (via DIDX service provider networks, TMC media channels, and AstraQom social networks) have used video on a mobile devices to wirelessly share videos for elevator pitches, client testimonials, and product demos on the go.

(First, I am looking for someone who is in Chicago or driving distance who is honest, good with talking to people, but also technically literate especially in the area of security who is interested in a 3-4 day job.

Paytoo Social Media Director Response to Square COO Stance on NFC

September 29, 2011

Written by Guest Blogger Brandon Cook, Social Media Director at Paytoo

We at Paytoo agree with Keith Rabois’ stance on NFC (Near Field Communications) in his recent interview with GigaOM founder, Om Malik. In addition to Mr. Rabois’ many reasons why NFC will not work, we believe NFC’s feasibility issues begin with the business model and proposed allocation of profits. Too many players would have to get involved, including, but not limited to banks, telecom providers, network operators and handset manufacturers. 

Distributing profits amongst all these players and keeping everybody satisfied would be extremely complicated.

Women in Telecom Thank 360 Networks, Xorcom, AstraQom and DIDX

September 19, 2011

Get the women from your company together with women from other companies, and business development is assured! We prove it at every IP communications event we participate in.

The most recent was at ITEXPO West 2011 in Austin.

Gen Y Twenty Somethings and Virtual Worlds

September 19, 2011

Finally, I'm following up on behalf of today regarding Avaya's Technology on Tap presentations and reception during ITEXPO West 2011 in Austin, Texas! This is number one of several posts I'll share with readers. I haven't missed Avaya DevConnect's gathering at ITEXPOs in the past four years. It is usually the night before the first day of the Expo, a great way to mix, learn, and socialize among the innovators at Avaya and many who do business with them at the beginning of the conference.

One comment that echoes among my neurons is that of Avaya's Chris Lync: "3D visuals, avatars, and virtual worlds are second nature to millenials (also known as Generation Y)." In fact, ReadWriteWeb site notes that the number of users registered for virtual world sites broke the 1 billion mark during the third quarter of this year 2010, and half of them are under the age of 15.

Help ITEXPO West Keep Austin Weird and Wonderful

I thought New Orleans is the eclectic city, my favorite place to feel history, go artsy, and dance like a maniac. The Big Easy does have the funky hip aura and plenty of humidity to keep your skin young feeling. But Austin? Austin is cowboy culture, but it's not redneck.
