Yes, the videos endlessly outlining the scenarios and qualifications for being called a “pioneer” are depressing in the extreme. Who on earth thinks this label is important enough to devote such enormous amounts of time and energy? And is there really nothing they can think of that would be a more productive use of time? Such as supporting people in trouble, looking after elderly people, learning new skills, creating things and doing things together.
LEAKED: HuB Project 2018 [4 parts + 3 sub-videos]
The senior brother interviewed about "how easy and quick it is to lookup data" - well, welcome to Microsoft's online cloud (which is what they are using). Apparently, even though Microsoft think that the millions of businesses that pay for the services are the reason why they provide it, it's actually Almighty God who has maneuvered Microsoft to this point...and purely to serve one client (Watchtower). "Only Jehovah could accomplish this!"
Oh, and the phone system "we built ourselves"? It's built on Asterisk - a community open source project; no divine beings were involved in it's design - most organizations at least given credit to the open source project, instead of claiming "they" made it. Yet the brother seriously stands in front of a painting of some angels and hints that they might be used to call us?

Fay Dehr. HAve not gone thru all the videos yet but I am already laughing at this. Can you really tell they are using asterisk from the video?
Again... I only watched the first one so far but I could kind of see that a lot of this people are being trained in IT related fields, in reality they are being given enough training to be able to manage the instructions they get from that TLS
Most of these people could never afford to get this education any other way. So I really hope one day they will wake up and take that training else where and do good for themselves.
Hi StarTrekAngel. VoIP: you're right, from the video alone you can only see that they use Polycom and that the touch codes are standard Asterisk - but that could be another VoIP platform - it's impossible to be certain from just watching the video.
I can only speak from my personal experience. Uupon visiting London Bethel I was able to take a look at (1) the server room [yes, a "friend" who worked there showed me into the inner sanctum] and (2) the VoIP handsets in the guest apartment where I stayed. It's Asterisk.
If you want to verify this then simply sign up to a free VoIP service (such as SipGate) and dial the London HQ on +44 (0) 208 906 2211, whilst tracing the call using WireShark. All the info is in the IP packet headers. Of course, it is possible that the London Bethel has not yet migrated over.
Wow. They use VoIP now. After a project of 15 years according to their own words.
Decent multinationals have been using VoIP for 15 years and didn't take so long to implement it.
Surely Jehovah's blessing is a curse in disguise.
What balogna. “Weeks” to download... OMG.
What, are they still using 14.4 dialup? They can’t afford a faster fax modem click click
This garbage they are feeding these drones is BS front to back.
I had a short-term project with a computer department at one of the branches. I can't say which one because lurkers from within can track me easily. They take ages to implement something. It has to go through so many channels and there's always someone to shoot it down. The internet sucks. Nothing is free from monitoring. And new technologies are never implemented unless there's a legal need - and even then there's always some sort of spiritual twist to it. One of the worst types of people to deal with is a self-righteous, misogynistic techie.
The videos have been blocked due to copyright claims by WBTS.
Are they available elsewhere? Have you considered submitting them to FaithLeaks?
Inevitably, they try to silence us by using "copyright" claims! This only makes them look worse.
