Pepes Pizza

April 9, 2006

I just spent some time in Pepe's Pizza (officially Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana) in Fairfield, Connecticut. If you aren't aware, Pepe's is an institution in Connecticut - the original restaurant in New Haven has been host to US presidents and other dignitaries. Yes, my friends Connecticut is pretty boring - a great place to raise a family but our most exciting event is to go to New Haven and eat pizza.   So what sort of pizza becomes a state institution and is it really so good? Let's put it this way...

Pearl

April 2, 2006

We went to Pearl last night - a once trendy Miami restaurant. My Wife who is looking over my shoulder feels that it is still trendy. She doesn't have her own blog so I figured she should share in mine on occasion.

3 years back or so at ITEXPO we took a group out to Pearl.

Enjoying the Beach

April 2, 2006

I had a great day on the beach so far today and the Miami weather stayed good all day. I must say that blogging on the beach is the only way to blog.

One of the fun parts of being on South Beach is to watch the helicopters go by. I even saw a GoodYear blimp.

Deploying New Services

January 4, 2006

I received this article recently from Lucent. It is an article about Lucent services but it nevertheless is worthy of reading as it details some next generation services we will be seeing service providers deploy in the future. For example I like the idea of video greetings that can be sent via “virtual characters.”

I also like the idea of celebrity greetings and certainly these are being rolled out slowly but surely. I think many people would love a Donald Trump greeting that says “Thanks for calling… To avoid getting fired leave a detailed message after the tone.”

There is more to the article but if you are intrigued so far, give it a read and feel free to leave your comments at the bottom.

King Kong

December 19, 2005

A coworker told me Friday that no one he knows is seeing King Kong and he expected lackluster sales. It turns out he was on the right track. Some of the reasons now being cited for the slow sales are the fact that the movie is over three hours long and people have lots of obligations with the holidays around them. This of course means less free time per person.
