I’m happy to announce that the registration for the 2007 O’Reilly Emerging Telephony Conference is now open. Surj Patel and Brady Forrest are co-chairing this year’s conference and they’ve put together a fantastic line-up of speakers and sessions. ETel ‘07 will be examining the effects that VOIP, mobility, VOIM, and SMS are having on business and culture. As Brady writes over on the O’Reilly Radar:
We will be asking what happens when all voice traffic is just another data stream, every home has it’s own PBX, and when you no longer need a phone number. Startups, hackers and established players will all have the opportunity to speak.
Some of the speakers I’ll be personally looking forward to hearing are Jeff Bonforte from Yahoo!, Alec Saunders from iotum, Peter Csathy from SightSpeed, Martin Geddes from Telepocalypse and Om Malik from GigaOm. ETel ‘07 will take place February 27 - March 1 in San Francisco. Sign up now to take advantage of the early registration discount!
