It’s been a bad summer for blog writing, and this is just a quick update on some future plans. I will return to more regular updates when summer vacation ends and the children return to school.
In the meantime, though, I wanted to let people know that I will be at Fall VON and invite any readers to drop a line if they’d like to get together. I plan to attend the charity poker event (Sunday night I think?), I will miss Monday, but then I will be there Tues - Thurs.
Lavalife’s CEO Bruce Croxon is speaking on Wednesday at 5:45 in a session titled Social Applications and IP Communications
Lavalife has built and sustained a highly successful dating application on voice, web, and mobile platforms. Lavalifeâ€™s founder and CEO will talk about his view of the power of VoIP, and how to create customer value and make money in todayâ€™s current â€œrace to zeroâ€ economics. He will share some details of his companyâ€™s successful transition to 100% IP technology (including VoIP and Skype), and talk about the value that this move has unlocked for the companyâ€™s business. He will present his vision of how IP communications has opened up a new era of application design and distribution for socially-oriented applications.
If the abstract sounds appealing, please let me know — I wrote it and I will be helping Bruce with his talk
