For the past eight years, I've worked with helping midsized IT companies sell their products into a maturing telecom market. This is so different from the earlier times of unbounded growth that it doesn't even feel like the same industry anymore. In the old days (i.e., before 2000), there were so many new telecom companies sprouting up that a company did not have to be a leader to be successful. They just had to be good enough. Today, telecom vendors circle prospects like hungry dogs around a restaurant dumpster. The biggest and strongest elbow their way to the front, and the midsize guys try to keep from starving. ...
technology standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short length radio waves) from fixed and mobile devices, creating personal area networks (PANs) with high levels of security.

musician Marie Digby made simple videos of herself singing cover songs, posted them on YouTube, got millions of views, and parlayed that into gigs on the Carson Daly show, local LA radio, and general buzz as a true YouTube discovery.

She made the videos herself, posted them ... market research, surveys and trends

Shop Talk - Innovation, Marketing and Alliances: October 2006
This is getting repetitive. And ironic, given Comcast's position as a major force in the broadband internet and its increasing penetration into the content space. So, rather than bemoan the lack of blogs, I wanted to ponder a bit on why large companies like Comcast don't blog. Some thoughts: Too risky. Blogs are hard to do well, especially when you're trying to balance between many constituencies.

Don't want a lame PR blog. industry trends, business articles and survey research
