About twelve years ago a manager of mine handed me a copy of Business Communications Review and told me to make sure I read it every month if I wanted to survive in the networking/telecom industry.
I followed his advice, and over the years I've had the opportunity to contribute a couple of articles on topics ranging from IP multicast to Unified Communications to MPLS.
Starting next month (the August issue) I will be a regular columnist authoring a bi-monthly column entitled "real-time". I just submitted my first piece on enterprise considerations for Web 2.0. I look forward to the opportunity to join folks like Tom Nolle, Marty Parker, Michael Finneran and of course Eric Krapf in contributing to the only "must read" journal in our industry.
