Graeme Lewis's insight:

interesting. But still too clunky. The payment process should be like a single click. Tap. Zap, Scan - Done!... whatever method used, it has to be simple and very quick.

Real Callme inventor stands up

Real Callme inventor stands up | Mobile Payments | Scoop.it
The case between Nkosana Makate and Vodacom overlooked a crucial detail, the true inventor of the disputed call-me-back service and owner of the intellectual property.
Graeme Lewis's insight:

Ever had one of those, "I was there, I saw that!" moments? This was one of mine. I saw Ari and Joost run around the office like a pair of nutters, excited at having achieved the first pull/push response on USSD for his callme concept. He was a great inventor for sure. Wonder where he is now? A while later I pushed for SMS adverts to be included in the design for a new callme platform my staff were working on. A rough guess at today's numbers is these adverts generate hundreds of millions of Rand for MTN. And to think, if Ari had slept on his idea for another week, someone else might have had claim to having invented it. It just shows the importance to keeping your mouth shut when you have an embryonic moment, get it built, and get it protected fast.
