Ten days ago I published the "Scouting Report." Four days later I reported that my suggested number one pick, Martin Geddes was indeed headed to BT, where I actually felt he could do the most good, as he would fill a key position they needed to shore up to remain in the Premiership of telcos.
Today Martin's official confirmation about signing on with BT is now up on his blog. It's typical Martin, simply saying "I've changed jobs."
We also find that the Telco 2.0 Blog post on Martin's departure from STL where he's been working the last three years cites ten reasons why Martin joined BT Design. Take note of Geddes comments, including one about Ribbit, a core reason why I was suggesting that BT snapping him up would make him a great choice, and they did.
On behalf of all of Martin's friends in the Telco 2.0/Voice 2.0 world, let me be the first to say CONGRATULATIONS!
This begs the question who will be the next player picked?
