The O’Reilly conference on Emerging Telephony was held in Burlingame at the San Francisco Airport Marriott on January 24-26, 2006.
In the words of Surj Patel, one of the conference organizers, “I want a flash mob of smart geeks and their toys and hacks at this conference. If you're not a geek but need to know what the minds that invent the future are thinking and how that affects your business, come find them here together with some great vendors and "Next Gen" telecom demos.”
The conference more than fulfilled these objectives! Here are two slightly overlapping writeups on the conference:
