NXTcomm... don't just survive, THRIVE!

NXTcomm is one event I attended last year 2007. It was in beautiful Chicago, and when I left for home, I brought back around 800+ business cards, over 300 new signups on by global telcos to sell and buy direct inward dialing, and made some of the best business friendships imaginable.

NXTcomm08 is just a couple weeks away. You can sign up here. Enter the DIVS code to get a great discount on the full conference or free Exhibits Plus Pass, and it's in LAS VEGAS!

All those world-famous, innovative members, suppliers, and partners of, please contact me on email to make sure you RSVP the DIDX Dinner Party scheduled for the Wednesday during the week of June 16 - 20.

Everyone is welcome to get with me for your video interview about your services and products and why you choose NXTcomm08, and remember, it's all about you and your renewed successes in voice, wireless, video, social networking, security, peering, and everything in between business! But RSVP now for your video interview.

Dell in voIP?

Dell in voIP? Yes!

Our company's Dell account manager was just discussing this with me, and even he is using voIP and is a convert because in his words, it "reduces costs, minimizes maintenance, & simplify ongoing management."

And people say voIP is dead. I keep saying, no way. I talk with several dozen DIDX telco members each day about their provision of voIP via their individual mashups and solutions. It's amazing and inspiring. What's your take on voIP? What are you doing with it?

Thank you, Phil and Steve

I have a wish. Can I blog and run in my sleep since it's tough to make the time during awake hours to do either? I'm not complaining, just wishing.

I truly enjoy my company, our team, our customers, our services, our partners, and our suppliers. I spend about 12 hours per day M - F and a few hours on Sat and Sun working. I'm complaining and I know it. ;-) But I really love what we do.

I've got a new responsibility, to look out for a friend who is suffering with Benign Positional Vertigo. I embrace that totally. It's tough, tougher for him, than me, but we can kick this down. Especially after getting a call from Phil Giordano yesterday whose had a huge new challenge thrown at him in life, and after I listened to him, thought, what a wimp you are, Suzanne. Thank you, Phil and Steve. Thank you.

NXTcomm08 Media Sponsor List - Nothing Archaic About IT

So refreshing to see a list of media sponsors such as that of NXTcomm08... unlike many other IP-related trade shows who stick with an archaic set of criteria as to who can be their media sponsors, NXTcomm08 breaks the mold, goes against the grain, enters new and very cool territory, sees the big picture... you know what I mean.

NXTcomm08's media sponsor list, yes, includes one of "moi" services of Super Technologies, Inc... DIDXchange. And we like the rest in the list, do a fantastic job publicizing why anyone will be totaling missing out if they don't attend NXTcomm08 June 17-19, 2008. (It's easy to sign up and participate at with the DIVS code and also add yourself to the associated Facebook group at

I invite you to check out the NXTcomm08 media sponsors' websites to see what I mean. Nothing archaic about NXTcomm08, very refreshing!
