Taking On Telecom With Open Source: Digium

Possibilities to Disrupt?

Om has opened the door to potentially a very, very, very disruptive play, using open source and standards based technology, tools and platforms.

And the person he's opened the door for is non other than my next town over neighbor, Michael "Golden Boy" Robertson, the father of Gizmo Project.

The disruption though, may not first hit the traditional voice companies like AT&T, BT and such, but Skype and the other renegade VoIP types of plays that are out there.

The fit for federation lies with the likes of Yahoo, AOL and MSN, plus of course Google and Apple, all of who have software, content and hosting types of plays between them that actually have them owning a customer relationship that are of the kind that matter. They generate real revenue.
