Podcast 002: Marketing Hacker Tristan Barnum

Good evening, I.T. entrepreneurs. Tonight's podcast conversation (Episode 002) features Tristan Barnum -- a marketing hacker, dot-com IPO survivor and respected entrepreneur. Barnum co-launched and sold a wildly successful IP telephony business -- called Switchvox -- to Digium. Instead of exiting that deal to kick back and relax, Barnum is now busy with two innovative companies -- Voxox and Tellient, a recent startup blending analytics with The Internet of Things. In this podcast conversation, Tristan describes the courage it takes to keep pushing beyond your own comfort zone.
