Innovation is everywhere. In 2007, we began podcasting and interviewing technology experts and innovators. In 2010, we rolled out our online magazine Techistan and social video Muntwo. We are media partner for hundreds of Earth's favorite empowering events. We hope you enjoy listening to our conversations here on DIDX podcasts.

About us: Super Technologies, Inc. was a dotcom startup in 1999 ... providing voice over dialup Internet services and Virtual Phone Lines (a service that enables people and organizations to have a local presence in any of up to 60 countries and be a local call to their VIP) via direct inward dialing and SIP.

In 2005, we started DIDX, enabling 10 telecoms to buy and/or sell phone numbers wholesale. By 2011, we now serve 18,000 wholesale IP communications companies on DIDX.

Conversations with Tech and Social Leaders

DIDX Audio Podcasts is a program devoted to the art and craft of technology and social leadership and inspiration. The show, created and hosted by the DIDX.net team since 1999, features interviews with real people who have accomplished things we want to share. They are of different nations, religions, careers, gender, and attitudes. Be inspired! And please recommend others for us to interview and let you eavesdrop on!

Global Crossing, Global Caring with Laurinda Pang

  • Global Crossing, Global Caring with Laurinda Pang
  • Laurinda Pang is senior vice president of Human Resources at Global Crossing. The industry giant believes in its people as the drivers of future growth and collaborating to help local communities. They are an inspiration for others in IP communications. Laurinda was a joy for me to talk with. (I, Suzanne Bowen, travel a lot and depend on some interesting Internet sources; therefore, there is an occasional dip in voice quality of sections of these¬†podcasts. Take my apology but enjoy the content!)

    Some of the topics and questions discussed:

    1. Does global Crossing participate in in-kind philanthropic programs? Describe please.

    2. Why in-kind? Isn't it easier to give money?

    3. Does Global Crossing allow employees the flexibility to pursue causes that they feel are important, or does the comany outline areas of specific need?

    4. What kind of things do your employees do to give back?

    5. Do employees at all levels give back to the community? How?

    6. Word has it that Global Crossing grants employees a paid day off to give back to the community. It's called Community Day. Why did you start this program and how does it work?

    (We chose to interview Global Crossing because of a long term business friendship with them and because of their active philanthropic involvement that includes every employee. Our company has always admired Global Crossing beginning with my first contact with Sarah Patnode of GC in 2004 or 2005 at a dinner party at McCormick and Schmick's in San Diego. At that time our DIDX was a new kid on the block and companies like Global Crossing didn't mind. They were an inspiration and still are.)
