[News] Free Software in Web Conferencing and VoIP Makes an Impact

Hash: SHA1

Dim Dim: Web conferencing turns open source

,----[ Quote ]
| Available as an open source software, Dim Dim is flexible. It can be extended 
| and improved freely. Users can change the logo or the user interface if they 
| wish to. Although there are a lot of players in this space, very few provide 
| free and easy to use web conferencing services. Initially the company was 
| called Communiva. The journey from Communiva to Dim Dim was a fraction of a 
| day. Since Communiva was not such an easy to recall name, the founders chose 
| 18,000 domain names and promised themselves that they would not leave the 
| meeting without finalizing on one. To make the task easier, they set five 
| rules, which were: the dotcom domain name must be available, it should be an 
| easy to remember and an international name and the sound and spelling of the 
| name must translate without ambiguity to its spelling and pronunciation, 
| respectively. Dim Dim was the only name that met these rules.
