One of the great moments of Kamailio World 2018 was seeing Olle Johansson speak. Although Olle truly needs no introduction to regulars, it may be best to give a short one here.

Olle has been active in software development, software distribution, consulting, training and conferences since 1987, with open networking, open standards and open source. He has been pioneer in his work with many different kinds of VoIP and IM projects, among which are Asterisk®, OpenSER/Kamailio and ejabberd on Linux and Freebsd systems. His company, Edvina was founded in 1987 and has worked in many areas of TCP/IP networking, including directory services, information systems and security. He is a co-founder of Astricon and contributed significantly to channel SIP in Asterisk.

This week’s Vision comes from Emil Ivov, who received a Ph.D. degree while in the Network Research Team at the University of Strasbourg, France.  Emil is well-known for Jitsi (formerly SIP Communicator), as well as other open source projects, such as ice4jjsipfmipv6.org and (less actively in) others.

In 2015, Atlassian acquired Blue Jimp, the mastermind team behind the Jitsi community. This is a quote from their news post:

“Jitsi is an open source project that includes the WebRTC Jitsi Videobridge, among other technologies. The Jitsi Videobridge relays video rather than mixing it which provides improved scale with higher quality and lower latency. These are very good things.”

We talk to Emil while he’s at his walking desk! Topics, dramatic weight loss and the changes he made to achieve it. Randy wrote a book, Real Men Stay Fit: 101+ Simple Tips available at most Amazon stores. We also talk about privacy beyond Facebook and the invasion (or not) of smart home devices. How Google Lens kept insisting photos taken in Bordeaux were famous Paris landmarks. The usual suspects!
