VoIP News Editor Owen Linderholm picked a bunch of folks who have their hands in making VoIP something special. His list is very complete, and while with any list you can always find someone else you think needs to be on it, I'd say he's done a very fair and balanced assessment of who's who. (Yes I made the list which is flattering and most heartwarming.)
Then I was rewarded by Alec Saunder's reaction. Not only did I blush, I got very choked up. I could write a lot about why, but let's just say that I'm touched to be respected by someone who has accomplished so much and will accomplish even more.
Being seen so favorably by one's peers is the ultimate compliment. Thanks Owen and Alec for the late holiday presents and your very kind words.
