People are often surprised to find out that I like deep in the English countryside in a 379-year old house with a thatched roof. This has some advantages (such as being green, thermally efficient and lookin great. The downside is that the thatch (aka STRAW), needs replacing every 15 years or so. This is the cottage across the road, looking neat and tidy after having the thatch replaced last week.

Rakuten are buying Viber for USD 900 million

That works out to be $3 for each registered Viber user.....   That makes me worth about $30 Rakuten dollars!!

The googles suggested that I circle you. As this was the latest post in your stream, and the accompanying photo has some rather luscious boobies, I was tempted by their recommendation ! Sex still sells I guess ;-)

Ben Klang's excellent presentation at Astricon 10 in Atlanta.

In the last 10 minutes of his presentation he carried out his unscripted 'Dangerous Demo' - which won the 'Best Demo of Show' award for the second year on the trot.

Apparently +Tim Panton will be back next year!

This is what we should have done at the Astricon Party!
 
Not strictly AstriCon, but the ElastixWorld party the following week.
Paul (in white) and Edgar (on guitar) ROCK! Quite literally...

Introduction
James Body possessed a love of chemistry and blowing things up whilst at school. Luckily, he managed to put these and a number of other disruptive skills to good use as a Regular officer in the British Army. During his 20 years service he graduated with degrees in Electronic Engineering and Design of Information Systems. After retirement from Her Majesties Service, he became a pioneer of UK based VoIP, setting up SIPCall and Gossiptel, leading UK SIP<>PSTN services. A founding member of the UK Internet Telephony Providers Association, he has championed the 'disruptive' elements of the European VoIP community. As Research Director at Truphone, he is responsible for new and exciting technologies, ranging from the handset back into the PSTN. An enthusiastic supporter of Open Source software, he sponsors the development and rapid deployment of some of the leading telecommunications applications.
