What I Read Over the Weekend

This could have been a good case study article if it had been more specific. Instead it is full of vague assumptions. Not helpful at all. AT&T is adding cities in NC to its U-Verse with GigaPower. I wonder...

Marketing is...

Marketing is Everything. It is PR, blogging, social media, brand. It is also the uniforms, the installer, the bathroom, the office space, employees, atmosphere, partners, trunks, everything. Like all communications, marketing is both verbal and especially non-verbal. Marketing is...

The Net Neutrality Debacle

Many people have asked me about this. I don't have a rant about the FCC's Net Neutrality decision. We got screwed but I can't get worked up about it because that is what I expect to happen in DC...

Things That May Interest You

There are a bunch of things that I want to comment on but just don't have the time. Yet they may be of interest to you. I did get to comment on the FCC's net neutrality ruling and the...

The FCC Is Useless

As yet another FCC Chairman gets his job just to help out the Duopoly, I conclude that we can save about $350 million per year by closing the FCC. The FCC is totally useless to the average taxpayer. This...

Would You Hire That Way?

Lately, watching service providers (vendors, carriers, cloud providers - heretofore referred to as SPs) go to channel has been like watching either a reality tv show or a car crash. The way SPs approach the channel looks unplanned. MessageBroadcast...
