The Park Bench Manifesto: Why We Want To Kill Off The PSTN

Dan York, Director of Emerging Communication Technology, Voxeo

Date: Wednesday, March 4

Time: 5:30 - 5:40 PM

Location: Salon E

What do we want the post-telecom communication experience to actually be?  How will it be experienced by users?  How will it be different from what we have today?  While it's great to say we have problems with the existing infrastructure, how would we want it to work?  What is it that we are trying to build?  Why do we need to move beyond what's offered in today's PSTN?

In this quick 10-minute talk, communications analyst and strategist Dan York offers a straw-man proposal in laying out a vision for what the post-telecom rich communication experience should be all about. More than just individual point solutions suggested by different companies, how do the pieces fit together into a cohesive picture?  Come prepared to think about what's next and look at how you can join with the others in the eComm community to refine - and then build - that vision of a post-telecom world of communication.
