Telepocalypse by Martin Geddes: The telecom earthquake
: Ruminations on SIP and Skype. The comments and trackbacks are also interesting. I like the comparisons. Skype's CEO says that if Skype were a spreadsheet, it wouldn't be VisiCalc or Excel, but Lotus 123 -- the first package that broke open the market to large numbers of users, but still short of the mainstream. Similarly, a commenter regards Skype like AOL: a mass-market closed garden, far larger than the niche players before it, but smaller than the ultimate, hopefully open, system. See also VoIP and ENUM
on the possible "death" (or at least, "burial") of SIP. 11:57:32 PM
