Well, Google Voice has FINALLY launched to the general public! No longer will my friends and family be begging me for invites to this great program. And you won’t either ‘cause if you jump over to http://voice.google.com/ right now, you’ll be able to sign in with your Google Account and get your very own One Number To Rule Them All!
I’ve been using it for close to a year now to manage my cell phone’s voicemail. I really like the fact that I can get SMS and/or Emails of the transcriptions of my voicemail for not only my Google Voice number but also for my regular cell number. Between the Android client on my phone and the Chrome extension on my desktop, I’m pretty well connected.
Now if they only would get around to releasing a desktop VOIP client that works with this number, life would be good!
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.
I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.
I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.
I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
