One of the authors that I know and feature on this site is Jeff Pulver, and one of the many things Jeff does is promote a show called VON. The name is an acronym for Voice On the Net, and it is one of the most important and longest running shows in the Voice Over IP (VOIP) industry. The show is in San Jose this March (or if it is more convenient you could always hop over to VON Europe in Stockholm, Sweden). To find out details about the show visit www.von.com. Unfortunately I can’t go this year, which is a bummer because it looks to be another great event with over 300 companies exhibiting VOIP and IP communications products, services and solutions. Also Jeff always throws a great party at his conferences. It’ll be a stimulating and exhausting event for all who attend, but that intellectual and social stimulation helps continually drive progress and innovation in the industry.
