An interview with Tom Evslin on the Open Cellphone podcast

We've just posted the second show in the "DiamondCluster Wavelengths Open Cellphone" podcast series. John Sviokla and I talk with Tom Evslin. Tom is a retired serial entrepreneur and CEO who, among many other things, was a General Manager for Connectivity Products at Microsoft; conceived, launched and ran the AT&T Worldnet Service; and co-founded, along with his wife Mary, and ran ITXC Corp., which rose to become the leading provider of wholesale Voice Over IP service. He has also written an historic murder mystery set in the Internet bubble that is expected to be released in the fall of 2005.

He talks about getting a big company to do new things, what he learned at AT&T starting WorldNet and at his successful VoIP company (and how he got telcos to buy service from it), about the problems of vertical integration, and much more.

To listen to the podcast, go to the main podcast page, podcast.diamondcluster.com, to find links to the List of Shows page and the RSS feed. If you've never listened to a podcast before, you can start by just finding the link to the MP3 file and clicking on it to download temporarily and play with your personal computer's music playing software or right-click and save the file for playing later either on the computer or copied to an MP3 player or burnt on a CD. If you want to follow this series, you should subscribe to the RSS feed, especially if you have "podcatching" software like the new Apple iTunes, iPodder, etc.

There are more in this series scheduled, with the next one coming out early next week, I hope, and another the week after that.
