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....

If you protect the content of your "walled garden" partners, do you infringe on the privacy of your users?

AT&T may be heading down a path to determine exactly where protecting content ends and the boundary of privacy begins. Peter Burrows looks at how AT&T may start monitoring the content passed over its networks. This sounds a lot like the discussions taking place in regards to revisions to the FISA ACT.

In fact a common link between the two topics is the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and their Net Neutrality efforts. The EFF is mentioned in both articles and I find myself strangely agreeing with them on this ( ... i know, i know... strange bedfellows... ).

To protect the "open-ness" of the garden (ie network, applications, etc), I am willing to place a "stop" on protecting the intellectual property of various content providers. However, I am not willing to eliminate the existence of this information should some controlling legal authority want to subpoena those records to make a pirating case.

Where is the line?
