· What did he/she say she did?
· Why would I care?
· Did he/she want something?

We dreamed about how some day we would be making telephone calls over something that we now know as voice-over IP. We wondered about the future of telephone, utility and media companies, as we imagined how we would one day likely be watching movies and television the same way.
