I arrived at work this morning to find an invite to Grand Central. I logged in and set up my account. I picked a phone number that should be easy enough for people to remember and setup my voice mail. Unfortunately, I didn't seem to have the clearest connection, so my voice mail is a little broken up. I'll have to find a way to change that.
I wrote a post last year in response to one of Bill Gates' Executive Emails regarding unified communications. Grand Central looks to be a way to help unify the many phone numbers we often find ourselves having.
I do have some invites if anybody is interested. Email me at e m u e l l e 1 at gmail dot com (no spaces in actual email). I'll definitely offer one to my wife, but otherwise the rest are up for grabs to any interested early adopter.
