Get well soon Om

Just heard that Om had a heart attack on dec 28 rd 2007 . It was a devastating news . Om Malik was one of my inspirations to start blogging. Iam glad he his fully recovering and doing well. Get well soon Om. Get rid of that god damn Cigar. Cigarette kills. Period!. You may want to consider changing your avatar with a celery stick instead of that killer cigar.

Time and again i have been reminded by my friends that this industry takes a toll on our life. It's god damn stressful. We don't realize it. We completely ignore Our health for the passion of work. Wake up!

My blog named to Top 25 VoIP Blogs of 2007

My blog has been selected by voip-news as Top 25 blogs of 2007. Iam very delighted and humbled by this news. Thanks to David Hakala and Voip-News for this honor. I started this blog in 2007 august, and being nominated as one of the Top blogs of 2007 alongside some of the great visioners and leaders like Jeff Pulver,Andy,Alec Saunders,OM Malik and Rich Tehrani leaves me speechless. This is definitely a big inspiration for me to continue writing good articles. I never imagined that my blog would make it to top blog in such a short time( less than 5 months).
Hope 2008 brings in some interesting innovation in VOIP arena other than the cheap international calling.

Thanks to all my readers without whom this feat would have been a distant dream.
