@Gary - the link works for me - it points to a post on Ed's blog entitled "100 percent uptime", and the quote to which Turtle is referring is:
"It was interesting how consistent the experience of the IBMers here in the UK is with my own -- "voice mail is dead" said the IBMer running the meeting. That's certainly true for me -- I get around to listening to business voicemail once a week, at best. Sametime is where it is at. "

Our sales force lives and breaths by voice mail. It's a gabillion times easier to call someone and leave a message about the sales pitch while running out to the car to drive to the next meeting. Some of the sales guys go a week without plugging in the computer but can't last 20 minutes without voicemail. Sure Blackberry is great, but the whole walking and typing thing is too much for some people, whereas walking and talking.... Ok, that's a whole 'nother debatable question. I don't see voicemail going away anytime soon. <Ominous prediction bound to bite me in the near future>

The link to Ed Brill's site about voice mail is incorrect and I can't find it on his site ... am I just missing something here?
