  • MagicJack Catches Flack

    In what I think may be the most entertaining blog post this year, Richard Martin describes a panel discussion at the Internet Telephony Expo. This particular panel seems to have gotten nasty when the panel members started questioning the validity of fellow panelist Dan Borislow, the creator of MagicJack.

    What makes this post so entertaining are the comments. The first from Dan Borislow who seems to have decided the best defense is a good offence, calling out Matt Bramson, CSO of InPhonex and post author Richard Martin. In concluding his comment Mr. Borislow said the following:

    “If you are interested in learning how we have a huge cost benefit over our competition, send me an email.I think I can easily explain this to you. I believe you will be quite fascinated” – Dan Borislow

    The following comment comes from Matt Bramson, who after explaining to Mr. Borislow who InPhonex is, ended with:

    “If you are interested in learning how to sustain long-term, profitable business performance, send me an e-mail. I think I can easily explain this to you. I believe that you will be uninterested.” -Matt Bramson

    And they say telecommunications is boring…

  • A Talk by jQuery Creator, John Resig

    I’ve you’re going to be in the Boston area this Wednesday the Boston .NET User Group is offering a talk by jQuery creator John Resig. It isn’t often that you have an opportunity see hear a talk by someone with this much influence. And it is even rarer to do so in such an small group (most of these talks have less than 40 people in attendance).
