  • Blog Vacation

    I have been blogging for years and recently my posts have slowed to a crawl, due in no small part to my responsibilities at Shift. The work I am doing for Shift is very exciting and it requires my full attention. I have decided to take a vacation from blogging until I can get out from under.
     
    The guys at TMC have been awesome in their support and I know they will continue to dominate the VoIP blogosphere and IP Communications space in general. Thanks Rich, for everything!

    From time to time you will see me as a feature writer for various blogs and magazines and I will be posting some cool news pertaining to Shift at SIPthat.com, but I don't see myself blogging fulltime again for a while. Feel free to read the TMC SIPthat archives and my old blog site archive where you will find many podcasts and posts from the months/years gone by.

    Thanks for reading & listening everyone.

Imagine drinking wine in the exact vineyard that the grapes come from. All while surrounded by the freshest and most delicious Italian cooking on Earth. Now I?m back at work and every time I close my eyes I can see, smell, and taste the vineyards of Tuscany. Ciao!

  • AOL Throws inTotalTalk Towel - make way for the softphones!

    Aswath then Andy via Alec have uncovered what looks to be the first final word from AOL on their TotalTalk service. Aswath mentioned that he thinks it might be an html hi-jack but I doubt it. Of course, this all pure speculation considering AOL has not announced anything regarding the closure of TotalTalk.

    In my honest opinion AOL ran screaming into this broadband telephony race with what would seem little or no pre-thought. Andy makes mention of Phone 2.0 being partially represented by AOL AIM Phoneline. I am not sure about Phone 2.0 but I do think they are on the right track and should stick with messaging. Hmm, didn't Google just buy $1B worth of AOL? Yes, I would say the softphone + IM strategy is better for AOL and they should pour more resources at that initiative. Vonage seems to be on the same page who look to be throwing a lot of resources towards their new V-phone product (a launch party for a USB softphone?? <ugh>).

    For SMBs email, fax and calendaring are equally as important as Voice something I call SMB 2.0 (tongue firmly planted in cheek). Presence is also gaining some height on the hit list for Small and Medium Businesses, useful for click-to-call address books and alike.
