- VON Italy is approaching, we'll be there to present the Abbeynet vision (yep, it's our company) and do talk about our latest works: Abbeyphone VOW (it stands for Voice Over Web) and Presence. I'll be happy to meet with anybody is interested, just buzz me on Sitofono.
- Alec Saunders talks about OpenAIM: he is praising the good work done by AOL, but he wants more: he wants a subscription mechanism instead of a polling one. Wouldn't be nice if all applications behave like a SIP/SIMPLE standard compliant presence server?
- Andy Abramson on 2.0 for 1.0 presents a nice picture of transitions from old to new. That is to say, applying 2.0 services and applications to 1.0 technologies. We already do that, like using the HTML to build Rich User Interfaces on the web, and we already do that (as Iotum does) on telephony 1.0, by pervasively spreading the Voice Over Web.
- And finally, Livejournal got Voice by GizmoProject. As Luca points out, services must be tailored over the customers needs. Each community has its own color and shape, taste and smell, therefore you cannot stamp out a Voice-enabling application that fits for all of them. Luca's example of LinkedIn enhanced with voice services (but it could have been Qunu as well) is a fair example of how to enable a new revenue stream into an existing community service.
