Going back to Berlin

In just a couple weeks, the Mrs. and I will be headed back to Berlin for Kamailio World. Last year, we visited for the first time and Berlin truly made an amazing impression. Yeni and I have always shared different views on punctuality, so visiting a city where timeliness actually means something had me in… Continue reading Going back to Berlin

My Thoughts on Enterprise Connect

This year I decided to head down to Orlando and catch the Enterprise Connect show. Usually, the VoIP shows I attend deal with open source products and target Developers (as well as users, purchasers, etc). Enterprise Connect mostly highlights non-open source telephony offerings from such companies as Cisco, Slack, Microsoft, Avaya, etc. After a few… Continue reading My Thoughts on Enterprise Connect

2017 in Review

Some might even take a honeymoon during their first year. We decided to wait 6 years and it was worth the wait.… Continue reading 2016 in Review

Seth Godin and Broadway

I subscribe to Seth Godin’s email where each day my inbox receives his latest blog post. The man writes often. Every day. So each day, by noon, I’ve read one of his posts. Some I quickly skim. Others I read, think about how it may apply to me… and digest it. Others just click. Take… Continue reading Seth Godin and Broadway

Life can be simple

I loathe drama. If there’s a simple way to do something, it’s generally also the best way to handle a task. Ah, the wisdom we can learn from imgur. 😉 To sum up the photo: Why Complicate Life? Miss someone? Call them Want to spend time with someone? Invite them Want to be understood? Explain… Continue reading Life can be simple
