Transformational?

May 29, 2009

I'm watching two conversational threads right now. One about Google Wave, which as Andy Abramson writes:

I'll refer to Wave as transformational, as its not revolutionary, but moves work flow from asymmetrical to both symmetrical and asymmetrical universes simultaneously, changing how you work both in real time and offline time.

Google has built a "communications" object that is full of capabilities that creates hybrid communications that are going to be a blend of games, email, IM, blogging, wikis, and a lot more.

I haven't seen the Wave demo (see a review here), but the reactions have been nothing short of WOW, even more than when Google Voice launched.

TW Spinning AOL Out

May 28, 2009

January of 2000 CNN announced: "In a stunning development, America Online Inc. announced plans to acquire Time Warner Inc. for roughly $182 billion in stock and debt Monday, creating a digital media powerhouse with the potential to reach every American in one form or another."

This morning, over 9 years later, TW is spinning AOL out, according to CNN, a TW company.

Steve Case on Twitter had a lot to say about AOL: "AOL Spin-Off Approved Last Night By Time Warner Board: http://bit.ly/ThYkx. My perspective on AOL & Time Warner: has been a long, tortuous journey - and after a difficult decade, its time to open new chapter.

VOIP Patent Settlements

May 26, 2009

We haven't heard a lot about VoIP patent litigation since Vonage took it in the pants when everyone and their momma sued them for patent infridgement. VoIP Inc. was supposed to license their patents, but those guys are running from the law.

Paetec settled its patent suit with Sprint by licensing the infringed patents. Terms were not disclosed in the SEC filing. Sprint, with over 100 VOIP patents, sued NuVox, Broadvox, Big River and Paetec in January of 2008.

And Covad settled with VoxPath Networks Inc. over a VOIP patent dispute, according to Law360.com.



Email Overload or Bankruptcy?

May 26, 2009

HyperOffice is holding a webinar about Email and Productivity. It follows up on the LinkedIn Poll that Shahab Kaviani, VP of Marketing at Hyperoffice, held last week on reducing your Inbox with Online Collaboration.

This is of interest to me because I get so much email, including listserv messages and social networking notifications. There is so much noise to filter through - Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, email, IM/chat, voicemail, and text messages - it is becoming overwhelming.
