Chris Anderson head curator of TED invited 6 people from TED community, including John Werner to solve a challenge known as Voice Mail Hell. The team has committed to find some kind of solution to the Challenge by the end of this week and if TED thinks its strong will announced it in the final session at TED Long Beach and communicated to 1,800 attendees in writing after the conference.  Anders Brownworth programmed an app demo for an Android phone.  He and Frank Kellerher worked on a video for the Friday Main stage presentation.  Fresh tilled soil, a TEDxBeaconStreet Superhero is creating the landing page and others are also helping with this important challenge.
