Pure-ism is financially dangerous
As the world around changes, services are rapidly changing from human rendered services, to bots and applications that run on your mobile device.
Digium D65 – More than a Home Run!
I love the feeling of unboxing a brand new IP phone, specifically, when it’s one that comes from Digium. Yes, I’m a little biased, I admit it – but I’ll do my best to refrain from dancing in the rain with this post.
Telephony Fraud – Further Analysis
Following yesterday’s post, I’ve decided to take another set of data – this time following the start of the year, with a specific data profile.
Telephony Fraud – Still going strong
Who would believe, in the age of Skype, Whatsapp and Facebook – telephony fraud, one of the most lucrative and cleanest form of theft – is still going strong. Applications of the social nature are believed to be harming the world wide carrier market – and carrier are surely complaining to regulators – and for […]
Statisics, Analytics – stop whacking off
Managers! Project Managers, Sales Managers, Marketing Managers, Performance Managers – they are all obsessed! – Why are they obsessed, because we made them that way – it’s our fault! Since the invention of the electronic spreadsheet, managers relied on the same tools for making decisions – charts, tables, graphs – between us, I hate Excel or for that respect, any other “spreadsheet” product.

I have to admit that moving from the RedRock resort and Casino to the Holiday Inn in Chicago – talk about a mind blowing change. Just to give a general idea, the bath room in Vegas was roughly the size of the entire room here (mental note to self – next time order something better via BA miles).
The Asterisk scaleability Unicorn
Asterisk Scaleability is somewhat of a unicorn – not because it doesn’t exist, it is a little tricky to do and get it right first time.
Stanley is gone – Welcome PHPARI
In my previous post I’ve announced the bootstrapping of a new PHP project, called “Project Stanley”. Project Stanley was an attempt at creating a Asterisk ARI developer kit, based upon the PHP programming language (yes, I call it a programming language).
Asterisk ARI – What AGI/AMI should have been
Asterisk ARI – for a seasoned AGI/AMI developer like myself, ARI is a serious mind warp. Why is it a mind warp? simple, it’s all the things we wanted AGI to be, and the reliability we wanted AMI to have, minus all the work around we needed to do – in order to get similar functionality in the past.
