Keynote With Mark Spencer at VoIP Sizzles
I will be speaking at this event in a few weeks. In case you haven't been to Dallas in July, everything sizzles, along with VoIP. This is a great name for a great event. Is it worth braving the heat to go to Dallas? Absolutely. The networking opportunities alone last year made I worth my while. There were a number of partnerships and deals struck at the inaugural show last year. I expect this year's event to be even better. See you there.

Keynotes by Industry Leaders: Rich Tehrani (TMC) and Mark Spencer (Digium)
Rich Tehrani is a VoIP industry expert, visionary, author and columnist. In 1998, he founded the leading magazine focused on IP telephony, INTERNET TELEPHONY; and, in his role as president of TMC, is the owner of the registered trademark for the term Internet Telephony. Rich is also the founder and chairman of INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & Expo, the leading conference focused on VoIP since its launch in 1999.
As a writer, Rich's columns appear in every issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY® magazine. He is also the author of "Tehrani's IP Telephony Dictionary", a 300+ page guide to over 10,000 VoIP terms, acronyms, products and services. Rich has also been a keynote or featured speaker at the INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference and Expo, as well as at numerous other VoIP events hosted by companies such as Intel/Dialogic, Lucent, Brooktrout and Inter-Tel. He is a seasoned public speaker.
Mark Spencer founded Linux Support Services in 1999 while still a Computer Engineering student at Auburn University. When faced with the high cost of buying a PBX, Mark simply used his Linux PC and knowledge of C code to write his own! This was the beginning of the world-wide phenomenon known as Asterisk, the open source PBX, and caused Mark to shift his business focus from Linux support to supporting Asterisk and opening up the telecom market! Linux Support Services is now known as Digium, and is bringing open source to the telecom market while gaining a foothold in the telecom industry.
Mark strongly believes that every technology he creates should be given back to the community. This is why Asterisk is fully open source. Today that model has allowed Asterisk to remain available free of charge, while it has become as robust as the leading and most-expensive PBXs. The Asterisk community has ambassadors and contributors from every corner of the globe.
