RE: Asterisk

Hey for the same reason that I run my own personal Asterisk server at home (asterisk is an opensource ip pabx – so basically I also run a commercial grade office telephony system in my home as well).


These things enhance and add value to your life.


Sure it may cost money upfront and yes you could do some of the stuff I use Asterisk for with a combination of Skype and GrandCentral ….why compromise.


BTW for those of you that are going to be at BarCampNYC3 this weekend and are curious about Asterisk I’m going to be running an “Introduction to Asterisk session” which will give you a good overview of everything you’ve ever wondered in 15 minutes or less. For those of you not attending check out


Also I haven’t played with it yet but there was a very interesting announcement this week from a company called that they just opensourced their previously commercial Asterisk GUI.

For those of you that want a cleaner solution a company I am consulting to is about to launch this application in a paperbook sized appliance. Will retail for less than $1k and support up to 40 simultaneous calls. The first batch of 400 are currently in customs on the west coast so will post more about it later.

I guess also it's a bit easier for me as I run my own exchange email server from home (I have sbs2003 installed on one of my home servers), so for 5 years I have had access to outlook web access, push email synch with my cell phone, sharepoint 2003 etc etc – so I'm kind of spoiled that way and appreciate not everyone wants to shell out the license fees for that kind of setup for their personal email.
