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....

I am intrigued by the speculation that Julius Genachowski may become a nominee for the next head of the FCC.  In particular, I found the following statement/’quote’ to be of interest:

“Obama has highlighted his goal to bring universal broadband Internet access to all Americans and promote "net neutrality," which would prevent network operators from blocking or slowing content on their networks.”

It seems to me that this goal is a good one.  But the implementation of such of goal seems to be problematic.  Getting the private sector to expand broadband Internet without the some type of carrot (ie the ability to increase speeds for certain types of content for a price) seems to be wanting to have the best of both worlds.

Also, I’m concerned about having a lawyer, like Julius Genachowski, in charge of either the Federal “CTO” or FCC posts.  Yes, it is good for regulatory issues, but I want technologists and/or telecom professionals in those positions.

What say the people? Post your comments below or send me an email to JohnLMyers@msn.com.

NOTE – Don’t get me started on the near-useless concept of a federal CTO… :)
