Twilio sponsors TechCrunch Disrupt, featured in hackathon


TechCrunch Disrupt is happening in NYC now featuring great panels and demos about so-called disruptive tech.

Twilio appears to be the only telephony-related company to sponsor this event. However, as these hackathon demos show, telephony and SMS are fast becoming a favorite feature for Web programmers.

I cannot help but think about the somewhat disruptive impact of companies and products like Twilio in the telecom applications space. They are bringing telephony to the Web, and with the population of Web programmers being far greater than telecom programmers, it’s only a matter of time before all the PBX, IVR, and CTI applications are developed with ties to Web technologies. In some ways this is already happening with the advent of Web services and cloud applications.
