Jeremy McNamara is a highly respected member of the global Asterisk business community. In fact, I remember him being highly praised at the 2005 Astricon in Garden Grove, CA. I was proud to meet him.
He has posted his opinion concerning DIDX's being chosen for the Digium Innovation Award for service providers 2007. I've responded on his blog and will also copy my comment here.
We should not have announced the award early. We should have left that to Digium itself and we apologize for doing so. It was just so exciting!!! We don’t abuse those who use DIDX.net. We do our best to serve them with their needs to buy and/or sell DID. Some time in 2005, I believe, we bought a few DID from your company and resold them to our consumer and small business customers on www.virtualphoneline.com via our servers in Houston and Tokyo. We did not sell them to DIDX members. We routed them only through DIDX to our own Virtualphoneline consumer platform not for sale to other DIDX members.You accused us of selling to them to DIDX members and refused to see the facts.
We pay a total of 100’s of thousands of dollars to those DIDX members who sell DID on DIDX now. In turn those DID that are sold are made available for sale to the DIDX members. The members include governments, CLECs, wireless operators, business consultants, social community portal providers, and other entrepreneurial and/or nonprofit organizations. We are a business helping other businesses, paying salaries for 30 or so very hard working employees, and doing our best to promote DIDX.
We already settled the mistake we made with you Jeremy McNamara in 2005 and 2006. Jeremy, please don’t do this. We never speak bad of you nor of anyone. We just would never do that. It doesn't make you look good.
