Garblephone

We are exploring new methods of call setup, allowing the originating party to participate in the decision as to whether to alert the called party. A small community of trusted callers will have the ability to "listen in" to the called party's office or location (see Nomadic Radio), with this audio modified to convey context and speaker identity, but not content. The caller can then decide whether to interrupt or leave a message.
