News: Asterisk's Mark Spencer Speaks

The keynotes at Internet Telephony Conference & Expo keynotes kicked off today, the first day of this four-day event, with Mark Spencer of Digium/Asterisk to a huge audience. Mark started his talk by saying that his company runs VoIP on a network that is the worst case scenario and it allows them to find out if products are broken before others find problems. As developers they are thrilled to do this but not everyone in the company is as excited by this strategy (for obvious reasons).

Spencer says he has to be sensitive to customer calls as people associate telephone quality with the products you make. Mark mentioned that his phone system was recently inundated by callers looking for a very funny message (Mark indicated the sound clip is available on CD and did not explain how you could hear it if you missed the conference).
