Busy Day

January 24, 2006 | My Diary | By: Mark VandeWettering

Well, today I was off at the O’Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference at the SF Marriot.  I’m mostly an interested bystander of the VOIP universe, but have done some experiments and are likely to be doing more in the near future, and I thought it was a good place to collect a book on Asterisk and generally learn a bit more about VOIP technology and cellular phones.   I was also trying to put my brain in the entrepaneur/venture capital space, and understand what that’s all about.  I’m not sure I succeeded, but I was having a pretty good time, when all of a sudden people started coming up to me and congratulating me.   Yep, Pixar bought Disney.  Or something like that.   This move had been rumored for quite some time, so it wasn’t unexpected, but it was kind of annoying that it came on a day I had taken off to go do something else.   I decided to bug out a bit early and sample the buzz back and work, and get the scoop, but I got back at around 6:00, so lots of people had left.  But my card key still works, so I guess they are going to keep me, and my Pixar stock is 2.3 shares of Disney stock.

I’m burned out for now, so if you want to find out about some of the goings on at eTel, try  Dan’s blog for now, and I’ll try to get up some of my own impressions later, or maybe tomorrow.
