End of Year Tidbits

Stop watching the news. Seriously. It's nothing but depressing stuff. It is no way to end the day (go to sleep) or no way to start the day. Read something for 15 minutes instead.

Can You Find the Bestseller Effect?

December 16, 2014

In the world of telecom - T1's, broadband, WAN - we know who the buyer is and why he is buying - or we assume it based on experience. (Maybe we should stop assuming WHY they buy?) But in the world of IT that encompasses mobile apps, devices, cloud services and more, it is so much who the buyer is but why are they buying. Not why you are selling or what benefit your service provides, but why are THEY buying?

Many conversations I have with clients center around who to target.

More Money

December 5, 2014

In its series D round, Thinking Phones (formerly Thinking Phone Networks) raised a whopping $56.7 million in venture money to bring the total to $89 Million. (I think that is a record for VoIP, not counting IPO.)

2 Items About Open Internet

December 3, 2014

Like Global Warming is a lousy label for Climate Change, Net Neutrality is a lousy label for Open Internet. But then Open Internet is not so great either. However, the reality remains that the general public -- and denizens of the telecom industry -- glaze over when anyone talks politics -- even if it means a danger to their own job! Sad really, which is why I have shied away from talking politics for months.
