shalom zviki, nice story. I think that this story and the post on "joel on software" only resonates with people who "have been there and have done it". It is amazing how wide the field of software and start-ups. This means, not many people are going to get how incredible this story is. Even in other countries, not just in Israel, you don't see that many companies with real products and real customers that have the properties you highlighted. Keep it going, nice work!!!

Good observations. Your view is definitely a more personal and emotional than I would expect, this is a good sign. It seems most people do not know what to say about the changes in the business. The changes in conferences are a reflection on what is happening in the business and technology sides. Changes in the VoIP and telephony as a whole world are inevitable, just the consequences (product releases, more polished booths) are not that expected. Good to see that you have positive attitude. To see what we are doing in the VoIP/Asterisk space take a look at our site: www.tikalnetworks.com // keep on writing about the real world and keep on thinking positively ! ! !

It's great to see activity in Skype now part of Microsoft. So many companies once bought by the "big gorillas" tend to lose momentum and go dormant. As far as why "this one"? Skype was a nice innovative service a few years ago. But both their own services (skype out/in) and third party apps have not made the service expand in features. This stagnation is a killer for any company (service) in today's world. No matter how big and fast the adoption, sooner or later people get tired and go somewhere else. Skype can turn out to be a toy, or it can go in the way of expanding it's features and becoming a useful business and personal service. Let's see where it goes.

I am not sure if to be sarcastic, angry or just sad. To read from and IBMer that in B-School you can learn to think NOW, AND that this is a revolutionary move (did you call it "tectonic"?) IS amazing. Well, it's good that we are amazed on a daily basis. Did one of the Watsons carve in stone "THINK" somewhere on some steps of IBM??? OK, with less sarcasm. There is nothing new about teaching business students to think (analyze, synthesize, research, pose scenarios and discuss.) As far as other business schools (I am familiar with Harvard and Berkeley) the idea of making a business manager a good thinker, flexible, intuitive and maybe daring has been tried for a long time. This is true in academic programs and in business consulting. The big problem is the brain. It is much easier to teach analytic financial techniques than to teach "thinking". It is even hard to define "thinking" in many domains. What is the difference between a "thinking" accountant and a really good "operational" accountant. What does a thinking financial analyst bring to the table that a really hard working one does not? If you are a domain expert in these areas you can easily answer these questions, the sad part is that university professors think this is new and revolutionary... nice blog otherwise.
