Dinni Jain broke out the usual Powerpoint slides at yesterday’s Bear Stearns capper, but Insight’s COO enhanced his presentation with philosophy.

As for ’04, it’s upward and onward, although there is one service Insight isn’t rushing toward. It’s still "reviewing whether there’s enough capital to offer VoIP," he says.
