2001 Free Telephony Software Summit - 1/22, Palo Alto, Ca. - RSVP

Dec 23, 2000, 15:17 (0 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by David Sugar)

[ Thanks to David Sugar for this announcement. ]

The 2001 Free Telephony Summit will be held January 22nd from 5PM to 7PM at the offices of Via.net, in Palo Alto, California (directions at the end of this message). This summit is open to the public and all are welcome. (However, we ask that you please R.S.V.P. If the number of attendees's exceeds via.net capacity (likely) we will head next door to a larger space.)

This gathering will include those involved in the Bayonne project, as well as people from other free telephony projects, including pre-Viking. At the summit we will cover numerous issues related to development and inter-operability among free telephony software projects, as well as covering current and future plans for some of these projects:

  1. Current state of free telephony

  2. Applications and architecture

  3. VOIP integration and interoperability

  4. Introduction of interoperabale telephony billing services

  5. Driver design and abstraction layers

  6. Future directions for Bayonne and other projects

This will be a good opportunity to meet various people working on free telephony projects, to provide your input to the Bayonne developers, and learn about the present and future for free telephony software in general.

Please R.S.V.P. to Rich Bodo rsb@ostel.com 650-964-4678

After Summit Party:
After the summit we will head next door to the GeekSpace for the 2nd annual GS party (Starting 7:00PM) where, in addition to food and drink there will be conversation with people interested in coding, classic video games (several classic games are there), amateur rocketry, comics, telecommunications, Linux, BSD, music, physics, and other topics of geeky fascination. The GS party will go on until there is no one left to talk to, at which point everyone will be home chatting on IRC.

Directions:
The best way to get to 994 San Antonio Rd. Palo Alto, CA is to take Highway 101. Unfortunately, Highway 101 is very busy all the time! This means that you should leave early. From San Francisco, allow 90 minutes. From San Jose, 60 minutes.

From Highway 101 North
Take 101 N to the San Antonio exit, which terminates at a stop light. Take a left at the stop light on to San Antonio heading west, towards Mountain View. You will pass over 101. You will need to make a U-turn at the first stop light you come to, at the corner of San Antonio and Charleston.

Immediately after the U-turn (5 to 10 yards from the light), San Antonio Road branches off to the right (there is a small sign that says frontage road at the branch, hardly noticable). Follow the branch to the right.

After about two hundred yards you will see 994 San Antonio Road. The front of the building has signs for Via Net, LPPI, Avistar, and a little OST sign in the Via Net window.

From Highway 101 South
Take 101 S to Palo Alto and exit at the San Antonio Rd. exit. The exit will put you on San Antonio heading west, towards Mountain View. You want to get into the left hand lane. You will need to make a U-turn at the first stop light you come to, at the corner of San Antonio and Charleston.

Immediately after the U-turn (5 to 10 yards from the light), San Antonio Road branches off to the right (there is a small sign that says frontage road at the branch, hardly noticable). Follow the branch to the right.

After about two hundred yards you will see 994 San Antonio Road. The front of the building has signs for Via Net, LPPI, Avistar, and a little OST sign in the Via Net window.
