TMC Wishes Greg Galitzine a Fond Farewell

For nearly 13 years, Greg Galitzine has been a tremendously valuable part of the TMC team. His career started as an editor for CTI Magazine in 1996. Where he reported on the collision of the computer and communications spaces including what we called IP telephony back in the day. In 1997 we convened a meeting with Greg to explore whether it made sense to launch a publication in the IP telephony space. The outcome of the meeting was to launch what we hoped would become a cornerstone of what we hoped would be a new industry – Internet Telephony Magazine.

Greg became the editor of this publication and had the vision to see this is where the industry was going. Many companies in the communications space told us we were nuts for launching this publication as at the time there was no industry, just a few nerds calling each other on softphones.

Lo and behold, over the past decade this nerdy, niche technology revolutionized telecom to the point where business models have changed, new entrants have come into the telecom market and entire industries were transformed through international outsourcing made possible by inexpensive VoIP-based telephony.

In the last few years, Greg did a great job helping transform TMCnet into a major web force in communications and technology news. We are grateful to him for the years he has put in.

I am very happy for Greg as recently he has been given a great opportunity which involves a move to a new industry altogether. Galitzine has accepted a position with ISA, Inc., a prime contractor to the National Nuclear Security Administration and working in about 18 countries through Central and Eastern Europe to identify and interdict the illegal movement of materials for weapons of mass destruction. Greg will be taking his analytical and editorial skills to a higher level, contributing to national-level policy and operational support analysis for these major international nonproliferation undertakings.

While we all selfishly wish Greg wouldn’t move on, we are happy for him and are sure he will make a tremendous impact in his new position.

    Wow – impressive gig for Greg! We will miss him, that’s for sure! Too bad the old TV show “What’s My Line” is no longer around – Greg would stump them for sure. A fond farewell indeed, friend.

    Dear Mr. Warren Buffett,
    My name is Patraporn Lorwatanapongsa and my sister, Penpicha Lorwatanapongsa. We both studied in Ruamrudee International School. Now, I am 14 and my sister is 9. I really want you to help me because right now my mom has no money to send me to school anymore because my parents were divorced and my mom is working alone and trying to earn money by herself. So my mom’s job is not so stable. So i wish that you could help me to continue my and my sister education. I love learning so please help me and my sister.
    Please scrutinize it and help me.
    *P.S. I will never forget you and I wish that you will be healthy and happy forever!*
    Thank you so much! 🙂
