Sneak Preview of StyroFone

I’ve been dropping hints about our latest project (StyroFone) for the past few months. This week I had the chance to speak at ClueCon 2010 in Chicago to show it off a bit. We got a great response, both during and after the event, so I thought I would take a few minutes to post …

At any rate, we’ve published a few video tutorials …

StarPound vs. Asterisk

The other day, someone wrote me an email asking me to explaining how StarPound’s platform compared to Asterisk.  After I replied, it occurred to me that it might be worth taking a moment to blog about this topic. First, if  you aren’t familiar with Asterisk, it is the leading open-source software PBX and telephony package …

Lessons From a Launch

I’ve been involved in no less than two dozen software or Internet-related launches in my career.  Having just finished the initial launch of StarPound, I thought I’d drop a few notes here about launching.  This post will ramble a bit, as I am still really decompressing from the launch. I will preface this by saying …
