What are the top 2 or 3 reasons you use "over-the-top" (OTT) messaging/communication apps like Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber, Google+ Hangouts, Wire, etc., etc.?

I've always been fascinated by peer-to-peer mesh networks ... and other distributed / decentralized architectures... and so I felt compelled to write about a recent article from the CTO of Firechat.  They really do seem to be doing some interesting things...
There was a fascinating article posted on Medium this week by the CTO of messaging app Firechat: How many people does it take to build a network out of phones? Fewer than you think. In the text he outlines how...

Wow! Some amazing stats and graphs about Facebook from +Christopher Penn ...   (based on their latest earnings call)
Facebook now reaches 1.5 billion people, and owns 1 out of every 5 smartphone minutes every day in the US. Learn how marketers should be strategizing.

Interesting communications crisis happening right now on the Internet.  As you may be aware, a Minnesota dentist apparently paid $55,000 to go big game hunting in Zimbabwe and (perhaps inadvertently) wound up killing a lion popular with locals and tourists:

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jul/28/killer-of-cecil-the-lion-was-american-zimbabwe-officials-claim

The outcry globally has been quite fierce.  Consider this:

- the Yelp page for the dentistry practice is full of all sorts of negative reviews - http://www.yelp.com/biz/river-bluff-dental-bloomington

- the company's website was sluggish earlier today and now is completely offline (503 error often comes with an overload) - http://www.riverbluffdental.com/

- the company's Facebook page seems to have been taken down (perhaps by the company itself?)

And a great amount of venom spewed at them in many other forums across the Internet.

It seems like the company is trying to react on Twitter:

https://twitter.com/RiverBlufDental
https://twitter.com/RiverBlufDental/with_replies

but I am admittedly a bit suspicious because:

1. The Twitter account misspells "Bluff" with only one F.

2. The Twitter account was created today and has only 36 tweets (at the time I write this)

Maybe it's real...  but I'm wondering if either someone set up a fake account... or someone took control of the real account.

Either way, we are currently seeing a level of Internet vigilantism in play here.

As communicators, are you ready for something like this?

"stagnation is what we have. It's leading powerful players like Apple and Facebook to create ersatz copies of the web inside their walled gardens, when what we really need is a more powerful, more robust web."
It's going to get worse before it gets better

One of the most futureproof things a communicator could bring to the table is advocacy of HTML5 architecture ahead of appified information.

Very important part of ongoing #InternetGovernance / #NetGov work...
 
Today we submitted our contribution to the United Nations General Assembly's 10-year review of the World Summit on the Information Society ( #WSIS +10) that will take place in New York in December. The goal of this meeting is to set the agenda for the UN - and through that the agendas of nations around the world - with regard to the future of the "Information Society".  Please read our contribution - and we welcome your feedback!   #WSIS10

Here's a video interview about what I do with the +Internet Society - recorded in Buenos Aires at ICANN 53. The subtitles are in Spanish but I speak in English. :-)
