The challenge comes from the fact that an industry that has changed very little in the last century shows little interest in starting now. 1. The Zapata Telephony Project The Zapata Telephony Project was conceived of by Jim Dixon, a telecommunications consulting engineer who was inspired by the incredible advances in CPU speeds that the computer industry has now come to take for granted. Dixon's belief was that far more economical telephony systems could be created if a card existed that had nothing more on it than the basic electronic components required to interface with a telephone circuit.

If the Internet had been thusly hampered by regulation and commercial interests, it is doubtful that it would have developed the wide acceptance it currently enjoys. The openness of the Internet meant that anyone could afford to get involved. So, everyone did. The tens of thousands of minds that collaborated on the creation of the Internet delivered something that no corporation ever could have. As with many other open source projects, such as Linux and the Internet, the explosion of Asterisk was fueled by the dreams of folks who knew that there had to be something more than what the industry was producing.
