"In an unprecedented move by a Fortune 500 company, Hewlett-Packard Company has made its e-speak source code freely available to software developers and the public via the Internet at http://www.e-speak.net."

"More than 1,000 software developers are working with HP to develop applications on the e-speak platform; HP also is working with more than 100 business partners to create e-speak services. Examples of such businesses include an engineer dispatch e-service by Ericsson and a multimedia broker for training services by Helsinki Telephone."

"According to Rajiv Gupta, HP's chief architect of e-speak, "Just as HTML gave rise to a new set of economic models that radically transformed e-business in Chapter 1 of the Internet, we expect a whole new wave of business models and revenue opportunities to emerge as the Net leaps off the PC and into our daily lives. By open-sourcing e-speak, HP is providing the technology underpinnings for creating a new breed of intelligent services and appliances. We aim to make it possible for requests for services to be automatically brokered, bid and transacted on the Net, from any device."
