Venture VoIP Interview Digium’s John Todd

digium_rgb-160Matt Riddell has a nice interview with Digium’s John Todd over at Venture VoIP. It covers some interesting ground, including an outline of John’s typical week and how he came to be involved with Digium. Not too be too gushy, but from where I stand John is doing an exemplary job handling community relations for Digium.

I was also happy to see a reference to the VoIP Users Conference. We truly appreciate John’s regular involvement in our little group. It’s the kind of experience he brings to the conversation, and the willingness to share it, that helps us draw people in to the group every week.

John is however, extraordinarily committed to a narrowband existence. Perhaps one day he’ll see the light…

39 Free Soft Phones

Two-Soft-phones-200 copyMatt Riddell of VentureVoIP is always informative and a great read. This morning I see that he has posted an article listing 39 Free Soft Phones. What a great resource! He goes so far as to only list those that don’t require some sort of registration to download. Best of all he clearly indicates platform support for each program.

My two favorites, Counterpath’s X-Lite and PhonerLite, made the list. PhonerLite is notable for being one of the few with support for the G.722 wideband codec. (Am I not some sort of one-note instrument?)
