Communications: Everything is Amazing and Nobody Is Happy

The communications market is ripe for disruption, leaving the traditional players longing for the good old days.

I borrowed the title of this post from a Louis C.K. stand-up routine a few years ago. In that routine, Louis talked about growing up having to dial a rotary phone -- and what a pain it was if the person you were calling had lots of zeros and nines in their phone numbers (for younger readers, ask your parents to explain). He also talked about the amazing things we take for granted in today's everyday life such as human flight -- sitting in a chair hurtling through the sky.

Today, we have an abundance of communications technologies that are being applied to solve our everyday problems. This includes using products such as Amazon's voice assistant Alexa to accomplish everyday mundane tasks, or Vonage's Nexmo CPaaS combined with geo-fencing to solve the remote ordered soggy French fry problem (CEO Alan Masarek does a great job describing this application). I expect we already take things like this for granted without thinking about the technology used behind the scenes.
