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....

Everyone loves Social Media because of the hype and the eyeballs.  And everyone is sure that you can make money from those environments. However, I’m not sure that anyone knows exactly how to “wet their beak” in those environments.  Google? Telecoms? Paypal? Something else?

Lauri Giesen takes a strong look at how workable commerce/payment transactions may come to reality for Social Media.

In my humble opinion ( … and on a slightly different, but associated topic… ), I’m not sure that anything besides advertising will be available to make money in these environments.  Addressable advertising might be the way to break through, but…. I think that we have been waiting a long time for viable addressable advertising models and might have to wait even longer if new and “improved” privacy laws come into effect in several key areas (ie US and EU).
