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....

So… at the end of every year; you usually get several things:

  1. Lots of end of year reviews
  2. Lots of next year predictions
  3. Wall Street analysts with time on their hands trying to figure out future corporate acquisitions

The two recent “guess-timates” that I have enjoyed are:

While I am not necessarily against either acquisition, I have a feeling that Qwest might be a little to big a fish for a smaller telecom to acquire ( …see Qwest’s original acquisition of USWest…) and that analysts speculating on what Google should do in 2009 is similar to what they thought Google should do with wireless spectrum.

Do you think that we’ll continued consolidation among the smaller Tier 1/larger Tier 2 carriers?

Or is this an example of analysts looking for ways to play “match-maker”?
