Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



Its interesting to note that last week one of the United States's oldest forms of communication was retired. Western Union announce that it was discontinuing Telegram service. While this may be news to many who probably thought that they stopped Telegrams 40 years ago I think the interesting question is what will be next? With communication changing at the speed of light driven by email, text messaging, cell phones, PDA's and the Internet I believe we'll be seeing more changes in the very near future.

A couple weeks back the Denver Post notified it's business readers that it would no longer publish daily stock information in the paper in part to save costs but also in recognition that its antiquated. Newspapers have long been slow to recognize that they will be replaced by the Internet. Recent circulation scandals, dropping readership and flat ad sales indicate that the end is coming.

More consumers are demanding highly focused, electronic information, Blogs, RSS and custom news services are gaining readership faster than we can keep track. I'm interested in your opinion, have you stopped reading the local newspaper? are you an RSS junky? or are you clutching your printed copy of The New Yorker for fear of change?

Drop me a line and let me know how communication has changed in your world.
