Gizmo Call - Telephone Numbers Should Be Free

From the article: VOIP company SIPphone decided to build a system that would give people free local telephone numbers in countries around the world for free. No monthly fee. No per minute fee. No setup fee. To do this we had to come up with a clever system. We wanted to make it easy for anyone to use so we decided to use our Gizmo Call technology.

Thoughts on 58 page IP Telephony in Pakistan by DIDX Suzanne

May 21, 2007

Dear Salman,

Thank you for sharing 58 page paper on IP telephony. It was a topic of conversation among Nadeem Khan, me and others last night in Washington DC. I enjoyed the comprehensiveness and welcomed the neutral voice behind your words...

Here are my thoughts in a nutshell.

With the blurring of media and voice services because of IP transportation, it might be better to give the whole picture a more encompassing name: IP communications instead of VoIP.

IP communications includes our 5 senses signt/video, sound/voice, touch, scent, taste... the last 3 are not as insane as they sound. IP Communications includes voice, video and data today as people understand it, and tomorrow it will include the last three.

The new next-gen IP communications solutions give presence. The user's communication mode can be changed anytime remotely and it follows you everywhere, less expensive and more feature rich than even cellular as we know it now.

Old revenues and business plans disappear replaced by innovative marketing, vertically, horizontally. (As Pakistan encourages entrepreneurship, the world will see the Skypes and DIDX's coming out of Pakistan instead of elsewhere.)

Clear boundaries are needed, but I hope the decisions by the leadership in Pakistan keep in mind that where the following are available: information, next gen network opportunities and less regulation rather than more...

that... entrepreneurial activity flourishes, the nation benefits as the middle class grows, more are happy with their standard of living and people in general are less likely to participate in public violence.
I.e., if significant conditions had been placed upon IP communications entrants worldwide over the past 10 years, there would be no Google, no Youtube, no eBay/Skype, no Vonage, no Super Phone... etc. some started in a college dorm or basement by Bright Entrepreneurs... wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of this type service and innovation coming from Pakistan?

Thank you,
Suzanne Bowen

Eddy's Words about Being Homeless in San Jose

Just finished sitting in a lawn chair in my back yard enjoying the water sprinkler sharing itself between me and garden and was thinking about the last conference I went to, Spring VON in San Jose in March for our DIDX DIDXchange meetings (we're usually a media sponsor for VON, now VONmag is another story that I may talk about in the future when I can calm down)

... funny the things that stand out to me from conferences. Running with the 5-15 VoIP guys every morning from MCM Telecom (Mexico CLEC), Belgacom and more... making introduction videos with Scott of Worldworkz, John of Airone, Matthew of a cool South Africa voip startup and more... dancing by myself as always (I'm married) at Pulver's party...

but I remember most of all a conversation I had with the homeless guy named Eddy in San Jose, who was sitting at the Lite Rail stop at 2 AM because he wanted to make sure he got to work on time for his new job. He didn't have to be at Lucky's (used to be Albertson's) until 5 AM.

Eddy's words echo in my head, "I don't mind that you are different from me, Suzanne. I don't mind if you don't do things like I do. In fact, I relish this very fact and it's been such a pleasure to hear your view of life and to know that you were really interested in my view. People usually ignore me and that is what hurts the most, but you didn't. You just walked up to me and started talking to me. It's 2 AM and I feel better already. Today's gonna be a good day."

I will never forget him. You can at least meet him on Youtube here. I hope Eddy is happy.
