Kickoff Posting

It's been just about one year now. The experiences are beyond your wildest dreams. At times, I need to pinch myself. The place is a different culture than anything I've ever experienced in many many years in technology in many parts of the country. I feel like a kid again.

Working for Mark Spencer and getting to know him will lead you to one of my favorite sayings, "You can't make this stuff up!" Although I did not create that saying, it best describes a day in the life of Digium. Digium, in case you may now know, is the entity behind Asterisk, the world's leading open source IP Telephony Platform. Try it. If you are a geek, Linux type, visit if you are not a geek, go to and download it and use the GUI to configure your server.

In the future, I will publish some of those more interesting items here. You will in the future, get to read all the details in my book. More on that later.

Today we started executive meetings at 7:30 AM. Yes, Mark was on time. For that, he basically took $20 from another exec who did not think he'd be there on time for the international conf call! Oh yes, Mark will really focus on delivery and execution for $20!

Mark is a renowned Keynote Speaker, and Monday he will do a keynote in Atlanta with the CTO of CBeyond as they present to 150 people interested in SIP Trunking and the Asterisk Appliance!

Today, we discussed two of our younger employees: 19 year old Business Development person who will be attending university in Paris this year; and a 17 year old home-schooled genius who can write code like no tomorrow! Being around these young men makes me feel young!

As unreal stories unfold, you will hear them on this blog. Enjoy........bill
