Why Our Duopoly Doesn't Work

November 8, 2013

The FCC starting with Chairman Powell did everything it could to get to a Duopoly. There were some crumbs given to alternatives but mainly just crushing blows (Brand-X, DSL, etc.). Granted, WISPA won the 3650 MHz battle and many non-ILECs won BTOP and BIB money, but we are stuck with a Duopoly for most services. It is cable or ILEC.

Unemployment and the Digital Divide

July 18, 2011

In this article in TechCrunch, you will read an interesting look at how Silicon Valley and the march of technology are causing a Digital Divide.

Every online sale takes away from brick-and-mortar business just as Wal-mart has run over mom-and-pop stores, each resulting in empty storefronts and unemployment. When we start automating basic jobs - like robots to make fast food burgers - we have to realize that the unemployed and the unemployable will grow. (There 's a great article in The Atlantic about what it's like to be unemployed for an extended time.

Jobs

I was lured in to watch some of the GOP Presidential candidates debate on CNN last night. (I'll keep any comments about how the Baker Act comes to mind while watching some of them.) Then I switched over to watch the Bruins just pound Vancouver again. (Sorry, Wig!) But the prevailing debate theme was JOBS.

I just noted that bankers are making pucks on M&S and debt, but there are jobs out there. Two were in my inbox today.

One CLEC needs a VoIP Account Exec.

One MSO needs some with Broadsoft experience.

A couple of months ago, a few CLEC's were hunting for Channel Managers.
