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....

Last week, out there… somewhere… there were probably traditional teleco execs laughing at Skype's troubles. And actually, everywhere there are traditional teleco change management teams that were chuckling at what could have been one of the most impactful upgrades in history. ( ie “are you sure that you have tested this upgrade?” )

Yesterday, Richard Koman does a good job of not taking pot shots at the boys at Skype while laying out the "facts" as they are known today.

While there have to be lots people who have based part or all of their lives and/or business plans on free peer to peer (P2P) telecom services I only use the free ( as in speech and not beer... ) services provided by Skype and perhaps that's exactly why I didn't get too upset about the outage. It hard to get too upset at a "nice to have" facility. But I doubt that the executives at eBay paid all that money for something that is a "nice to have"...
