Today I got an email notification that I had been added to the Jaxtr beta. I signed up and now have added a small link on my sidebar for the time being to see how well it works. Jaxtr enables users to click the link on my sidebar and then call a local number to contact me without disclosing my number. In all honesty, I’m not quite sure why I wouldn’t just post my phone number on my blog, but that is neither here nor there. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I’m not quite sure how valuable these web based VOIP solutions are given that in some countries (such as Israel), it is cheaper for people to call long distance than locally. I’m not quite sure why this is, but I know that it is the case with my sister. Anyways, try it out, and let me know what you think.
