The Art of the Start - Reminiscing...

The Art of the Start - Reminiscing...

So I was browsing Technorati the other day and stumbled across Guy Kawasaki's blog "Signum sine tinnitu." I was really excited about this because it's been a LOOONG time since I've seen Guy who was a big fan of the first company I worked for called Silicon Beach Software.

Since I was a product manager at SBS during Guy's tenure as a Mac evangelist, we crossed paths many times at Macworld shows, etc. He was always cordial, insightful and had a solidly amusing perspective on the Mac world. As I recall, he and Charlie Jackson who was the founder of Silicon Beach were also friends. After Charlie sold SBS to Aldus Corporation, he went on to invest in little companies like Wired Magazine and Lycos. Not bad, eh?

But I digress. After reading some of Guy's blog, I decided to do two things: 1. rekindle *this* blog and 2. buy his new book called "The Art of the Start." I think it will help me in the SIPphone experience and I'm looking forward to the read.

So things are in full swing now with SIPphone. Lots of things going on in the VoIP world, and Gizmo Project continues to get better and better. We've just released version 2.0 which features Asterisk PBX support that's good for mobile workers and companies wanting more functionality out of their office PBX.

The VoIP "pool" has a lot of dangerous fish in it, but we've got some very cool technology coming up that will open eyes. The team is working very hard, but at the same time everyone is pretty relaxed. Difficult problems tend to be solved efficiently, and that's a good thing. Special props out to Claw and Prasad who continue to amaze with their prodigious output! ;-)

Cheers for now. KLR
