TMCnet for iPhone, Asia, Jobs, Cable, Satellite and More

April 15, 2009

As TMCnet has expanded I have to admit it is tough to keep track of all the sites we have which can help you in your job. To that end I decided to take a moment and list some of them which you may not be aware of. I thought this entry made sense as I have received some comments about how TMC should launch some of the sites listed below. This shows me there are just so many things we do that our 2-3 million unique visitors each month may not be aware of.

Surgeries Move to Twitter

April 13, 2009

In a world where it has become commonplace to digitally detail the events of our daily lives, it should come as no surprise that operations are being Twittered live. Most recently Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center announced it will will broadcast a bi-lateral knee replacement surgery April 16, 2009 at 9:00 EST. If you can't get enough of bloody surgery on TV, this Wisconsin-based hospital will let you take it with you LIVE! Here are the links...

Weekend Fuzzy Logic Thoughts

April 5, 2009

I sometimes get negative feedback when I discuss areas outside tech and telecom on this blog so I decided that if I am going to go off on a tangent I will usually restrict it to the weekend when my critics are too relaxed to give me grief  .

Some of you probably know I wanted to be an MD and/or biomedical engineer but fate had other plans. This should explain my fascination with many things biological.

Anyway I find the fact that fuzzy logic is being used to model and visual cell interactions wonderful.

Borg Beetle Portends the Future of Communications

January 30, 2009

Those Star Trek fans out there remember the Borg to be a species of humanoids who merged the best of the computational and organic worlds together allowing the perfect synergy between life, computing, artificial intelligence and networking.

If you are wondering how the real world compares to that of science fiction it may help to look at a simple experiment funded by DARPA which shows a microprocessor strapped to the back of a giant beetle can allow scientists to more or less control a beetle's flight the way any mini helicopter is controlled by your kids.

The beetle responds to simple messages to take off, land, turn left and right. Electrodes planted in wing muscles and optic lobes convert the electrical signals from the microprocessor implanted on the beetle's back to "commands" which the beetle follows.

Some Important ITEXPO East 2009 News

January 28, 2009

Here are some links from a recent ITEXPO Show Daily sent to ITEXPO attendees. It doesn't live online yet so I can't post a link. (Show daily 1, 2) Instead I cut and pasted some of the more important parts with the important links and videos borrowed from the ITEXPO home page.

Keep reading to the end and be sure you are at the show to potentially win the Jeep (you must be present to win). In this economy I am not aware of too many places you can win a car -- just because you showed up.

ITEXPO East 2009 Miami Panel Info

January 28, 2009

Hi all, thought it made sense to pass along this press release TMC is about to put out so you know what is happening at ITEXPO this Monday-Wednesday in Miami. Hope to see you there soon.

Oh -- and I used the highlighter pretty liberally because i was in one of those moods. Hope you don't mind.

TMCnet Gets a Redesign

December 2, 2008



While many of you were busy in the malls this past weekend or trying to find the best price on that new digital camera yesterday on Cyber Monday, the dedicated team of designers and programmers here at TMC worked day and night and night and day to bring you a new look and feel.

Over the past years, many of you have told me that you love to come to TMCnet on a daily basis and the hundreds of stories and blog entries we write on a daily basis contain everything you need to navigate the telecom and tech worlds. At the same time, many of you have told us the interface TMCnet has looks busy. Others have told me it is not clear that 50-100 writers contribute to TMCnet on a  daily/weekly basis.

Our new redesign is meant to adress all of these great requests and we hope you enjoy the new TMCnet.

One last point... Thanks to the 2-3 million communications and technology decision makers who visit TMCnet monthly and thanks to the TMC team for doing such a great job on this redesign.
