Jeff Pulver: Why aren't there advanced services? Nobody has any guts.

New York, NY. According to Jeff Pulver at the IPTComm 07 conference in Columbia: The reason there aren't any advanced services is because everybody lost their courage. We took the closed network environment of traditional telcos and replicated it in VoIP. So now people can't easily build new services on top of VoIP services.

"People need to have guts. People need to take changes. We got real, and we forgot about the fun...We've got to forget about ARPU and EBIDA for 12-18 months...We're forgetting about the core values that make innovation happen every day."

This is the first time I've heard Jeff speak. Anbody talking about the need for courage gets my attention.
