John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Personally, I liked Steve Hargreaves article about the concept of charging extra for electrical power at peak hours of the day. Anyone who has see rolling blackouts during the summer in California or New York can appreciate the efforts to "help people" understand how much their decisions can impact the greater electrical grid.

However, his analogy about this rating scheme being like current wireless call rating seems a little out of date. I have no knowledge of Hargreaves wireless bill, but my wireless plan hasn't charged me more for using my cell during peak hours for several years. Roaming during peak? Yes. International calls during peak? Yep. However in network calling during peak hours just costs me the price of $0.0x per minute from my "all you can eat" calling bucket. This is just like my current electrical billing. Perhaps Hargreaves is hoping to go "back to the future..." :)
