“The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible.” – Arthur C. Clarke In technology, some ideas take a long time to catch on. Consider Microsoft’s journey to Skype for Business. For better or worse, I was there from the beginning — from Microsoft’s first foray into telephony […]
As a nerdy guy, I love movies about other nerdy guys. Give me movies like “A Beautiful Mind,” “The Theory of Everything,” or “Einstein and Eddington” (two nerdy scientists for the price of one), and I am in geek heaven.

I recently presented a one-hour webinar that walked folks through the basics of creating Avaya Breeze Snap-Ins. It’s similar to my Introductory and Advanced YouTube videos, but it’s different enough to warrant a look even if you did wade though all ten lessons. The user questions at the end may be worth the price of […]
