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....

So today I joined "iPhone Nation" (btw I hate the phrase nation).

Not that having an iPhone is anything special these days, but iPhone sits at the convergence of so many things; it is hard to deny the fact that iPhone is a catalyst (or at least one of the catalysts) for telecommunications.

As I make my journey from "smartphone" (nokia e61) to iPhone; I will provide insights on where I think this interesting little device will direct the near and long term aspects of telecom.

First, I will start with the fact that ATT has failed to learn from history.... What was the major failing of AOL's $19.95 "experiment"? So many people were trying to connect that no one could connect.... What is the first thing that the Apple Genius told me? "Don't try to connect to 3G... You'll never get on... Use the 2G until further "notice" ...."

Gee thanks.... One area where telecoms often fail is to properly imagine the demand for their products/services. Because when they hit, they hit big and the network(s) fail to meet the demand. Hopefully ATT will straighten out their issues .... or maybe I just need to stay within range of free wifi for the time being.... ;)

Note - this blog was posted using my iPhone.... I am still learning my new typing skills.... :D
