Canadian Thought Leaders Podcast - Alec Saunders on Relevance and Voice 2.0

This week's VON Radio podcast was with Alec Saunders, CEO of Iotum. This is another good IP story coming out of Ottawa, and they've made some good announcements this week at the Internet Telephony Show in Los Angeles.

One thing I try to do in this series of Canadian podcasts is draw attention to how our vendors are providing some of the best innovation for IP, and that a number of these companies are based in Ottawa. Alec and I talked a bit about what makes Ottawa such a hub for IP, and of course, hockey. We also talked about the concepts of relevance in voice communicaiton, and emerging spaces such as Voice 2.0 and Web 2.0. Iotum is one of those companies that is very much built around these ideas that are certain to shape the voice market in the near future. Have a listen....

If you want to learn more about what's behind Iotum's thinking and where they're going, here's a terrific profile that ran last week in the Ottawa Citizen.
