I first heard about Adhearsion at GoRuCo ’07. Jay’s talk at GoRuCo was great and I think it got a lot of people excited about VoIP. Since then, he has really polished his presentation. At the Ruby Hoedown, he introduced Otto, übergeek and Asterisk neophyte. Having the fictional Otto in the first part of the presentation demonstrates the benefits of Adhearsion quickly and in a way the audience can relate to. Well done Jay.
You can check out Jay’s Adhearsion presentation at Ruby Hoedown 2007 on Confreaks.
As a side note, the presentation of, well, presentations on Confreaks is great. The 2-up display of the the speaker and the slides is much better than only being able to see one at a time.
