Is the Phone Number (DID) Dead?

I had this idea to share with the world of telecom-related providers that the phone number is not dead, even though we have social networking, cell phones,email, instant messengers, and tons of unified and converged communications solutions.

So, I emailed Hugh Goldstein my idea in the form of a Power Point presentation. And ... ITEXPO West has accepted.

Topic: Voice Interconnect and Peering Conference during ITEXPO West! Visit to sign up to attend, sponsor, exhibit.

Description: As VoIP services, presence, app markets and social networking begin to merge and dominate the consumer's Internet focus, are e.164 telephone numbers a thing of the past? Evidence suggests this is far from the case, in fact, LNP and DID wholesale providers are opening up new opportunities for e.164 numbers to enable new communications services and take a key functional role in the integration of new Web communications platforms and experiences. This panel will explore the trends and opportunities, and give use cases for social networking, Video telephony and nongeographic number business and use scenarios.

I agree with you on this. There are many implications of using one name for example or another unique identifier that I don't believe have been considered in this article.
