The story is about how they've partnered with Dash 911 to make it easier for their carrier customers to comply with E911. It's a good story, but the real reason why I'm posting is how I've been referenced in the press release.
I'm usually referred to as being a "VoIP analyst" or "telecom consultant" - that sort of thing. Which is the case here as well. In addition, however, I'm first referred to as a "VoIP blogger".
I haven't seen that before, but I kinda like it. It tells me that blogs are gaining credibility and are starting to be seen as a validator for the person behind it. Hats off to MetaSwitch and their PR firm, Eastwick Communications for thinking this way. I suspect we'll start to see this become more commonplace as blog become more widely followed. Works for me!
