One of the fastest growing areas of TMCnet is the channels program which are micro-communities of interest. These channels focus on so many topics I can’t list them all but a few of the more recent ones are here for your perusal.

I'd like to start this blog entry off by saying Happy New Year and wishing all my readers a tremendous 2007. I hope you are healthy and happy and that your family and all loved ones are as well. Having said that, I cover lots of topics on my blog and many times I focus on telecom and sometimes I get to cover weird stories that are hard to believe   Other times I tie a story into a trade show like the Internet Telephony Conference & Expo (ITEXPO) taking place in 24 days -- January 23-26 at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center.   Many times when I write about the show I like to have a hook.

Happy Holidays and Thanks!

December 15, 2006

I would like to take a moment and thank all my readers and wish you all a great holiday season and a Happy New Year. In addition I want to specifically thank you all for visiting TMCnet so frequently as we have once again hit one million unique visitors in the month on November according to WebTrends. This is the second time this year we have done so. (Apparently our October numbers are still being run -- long story. We may have hit this number in that month as well.)   Thank you for making TMCnet the largest community of communications and technology decision makers in the world.   A few things you should know about TMCnet going forward are the site will soon have a more streamlined look that is easier on the eyes.

At the Bar in Canada

December 5, 2006

I am heading back from Canada now and haven’t seen my office in weeks. This may be the longest time I have been away. Amazingly we have hired at least 4 if not 5 people while I was away. I can't wait to connect with the new team members.

529 College Savings

November 15, 2006

Sorry – this has nothing to do with tech or VoIP or IP communications or really anything TMCnet normally covers. Still I am compelled to share good news about 529 plans I just learned that on August 17, 2006, President Bush signed the Pension Protection Act of 2006. Among other provisions that address retirement planning, this legislation ensured that qualified withdrawals from 529 accounts would be permanently tax free. Prior to the bill becoming law, this benefit was scheduled to expire after 2010.   There are more details about 529 plans in this article from Upromise.
