One Year After Super Storm Sandy: Any Change?

October 31, 2013

As the one year anniversary of Super Storm Sandy that rocked the Greater NY/NJ area last year passes, many articles have been written, but not much has changed.

83% of Organizations Lack a Business Continuity Plan 1 Year After Hurricane Sandy. But then most people (A) don't think it can happen to them; (B) didn't learn from 9/11 and Katrina either (including our government and FEMA); and (C) people generally do not think climate change is real.

How To Raise Prices

October 30, 2013

Yesterday there was an article in The Atlantic about a global wine shortage. Apparently, we have had smaller grape harvests in the last couple of years. When you consider that wine consumption is up (and so many new winemakers including Dave Matthews and other celebs have entered the market), it isn't surprising. Plus add Climate Change, which has to affect not just grape harvests but all crops globally.

Backing Up Terabytes

October 24, 2013

I get asked often how a data backup will work when it is Terabytes. Even on a 10MB x 10MB pipe, 2 TB of data is going to take some time. It takes 16 hours on USB 2.0 which is about 53MBps throughput.

Green Cloud Technologies will ship you a NAS and secure hard drives.

Another Event

October 24, 2013

It seems that more and more companies are holding events. We have plenty of trade shows, but apparently that wasn't enough. Now master agencies have shows (some have more than one). One PR firm became an event planning company.

Character Above All

October 23, 2013

Thanks to Bright House Networks for the invite to lunch today to listen to former Colts and Bucs coach, Tony Dungy. It was my first time getting to hear him speak. It was an informal talk.

Dungy spent 10 years in Pittsburgh - 2 years as a player (Super Bowl win) and 8 years as an assistant coach under Chuck Knoll.

Will UC Work or Is It a Question of Money?

October 21, 2013

I see this often enough: UC firm nabs funding. In this case, Thinking Phone Networks got $10M in funding to bring the total to $31M. Thinking Phones has been around since 2006. Maybe UC just isn't going to work.

Now that it is out there I can report that cloud-based video conferencing service, Vidtel, was acquired by Fidelity. Wainhouse, a research house for the telepresence industry, let the news out yesterday.
