Alec Saunders: "New Presence and the Voice 2.0 Manifesto" - how do we move to the next level of presence awareness?
Given that I view "presence" as one of the more potentially disruptive elements of IP telephony, I was pleased to see that over on his blog Alec wrote a very lengthy and insightful piece entitled "'New Presence' and the Voice 2.0 Manifesto". I always enjoy Alec's writing and this time it's no different... it's great when someone can make the time to write a thoughtful piece like this. Since the piece came out, I've wanted to write more about it, but I have to suck it up and admit that with everything else I'm trying to close off before the end-of-year tomorrow, a lengthy reply is just not going to happen.
However, some others have offered replies and they, too, are well worth a read:
- Ken Camp: The Absence of Presence (also a lengthy thoughtful piece)
- Brough Turner: Why not call "new presence" availability?
- PhoneBoy: Presence and Identity
All are well worth a read. Thanks again, Alec, for starting a worthy conversation.... hopefully I'll find the time to chime in soon.
