Almost every morning between 4 and 6 AM, I read, listen and watch GigaOm, TechCrunch, TMC, RCR Wireless and Voip, Geekspeak.org, and various blogs and video channels. After reading a post by Stacey Higginbotham at GigaOm, I asked entrepeneur and business owner Darren Schreiber to let me record a talk with him that I could share with the public online. He is co-founder and CEO of 2600 Hertz.
Okay, so you could call it a Somewhere over the Rainbow spoof, but I was playing around with writing lyrics for different companies' marketing and advertising projects including our own (Super Technologies, DIDX, Techistan, etc.) and a friend of mine Jamesopera said he would sing this one.
You'll also see guys and gals from different companies in the video who have something to do with Unified Communications ... which is the topic of this video: Avaya, TMC, D2 Technologies, Inc., Paetec, Telefonica, Comtel-Networks, Nokia, Shoretel, Turktel, Phone.com, Iotum Corporation, Cisco, fring, Siemens, Mitel, IceWarp, Radvision, etc.
Here are the lyrics:
Anywhere throughout the Internet Way out there Lie the goals that you made up Once in a first class seat (a few sheets to the wind in the Cloud)
Everywhere despite lack of spectrum Videos, voice, and text stream seamlessly Over every device that you wished for Text could even be converted to VM ... ooh ooooh
This day I'll wish upon an Asterisk Wake up where the latency will be far behind us Where companies deploy IP networks High inside the Cloud puffs, where they'll store it all
It depends on who will be there. Isn't that what you think when someone asks, "Will you join us?"
Who will be at some of the coolest, absolute business-developing events during ITEXPO East and what, when, and where? The most interesting people in IP anything! Stay informed, my friends.

I am excited! A third party is buying MagicJack and Nettalk services for me and others in Pensacola, Florida, USA area to do a comparative review. They are competitors, big time! Nothing else compares to either one.
Let me know any particular particulars you think I should compare and contrast. I am feeling very neutral. I should get both devices and services started at my home within a month. I will report on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin and will compile it here and on Techistan magazine.
The DUO carries on the capability of being the only device in the world flexible enough to connect directly to your router's internet connection OR through your computer?
Techistan reports on it and will soon offer a product review. Nettalk offers unlimited outgoing calls to USA and Canada at $69.95 the first year including the DUO device. The second year is $29.95 ...
That breaks down to $2.50 per month for free nationwide calling throughout the USA and Canada plus all of our other calling features without monthly phone bills and contracts.
Why would anyone want to use a "home phone" or a "business phone" that is not a cell phone or on a PBX like this? There are millions. Plus, if the user can call in and out with DUO attached to a computer... it is mobile. Continue Reading...
Suzanne, English teacher and Technology - that is an interesting combination!! Guess we have something in common there, I will be a geek turned teacher and you are a teacher turned geek :-)
I completely agree with you that there is a market for everything. However, the problem is information asymmetry. Most consumers are not aware of the options available to them and hence artificially restrict their consideration sets, making suboptimal choices. As an information intermediary, my (or other bloggers') role is to provide the consumers with reliable and unbiased information so that consumers can construct their consideration sets appropriately.

So ... watch the two videos, read the inspiring message from Jeff today about a book he plans to write and decide for yourself. Some of the statements that stand out in the videos to me the most are ...
