It’s a new year, and in my effort to start it off right, I need to speak some truths:
1. I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, so I don’t have to feel bad about myself when I break them. I consider this a very evolved, non-superstitious position (or else I just have no willpower).
2. I read the last page of a novel to find out how the story ends.
3. On movies, I read spoiler reviews before I see the film. I have no problem with this.
Is is clear that I hate uncertainty? (Wow, am I in the wrong business.) Waiting for events to unfold makes me nuts. It’s no wonder I believe in the power of predictions. Whether or not they come true, just reading them can calm the inner anxiety beast.
And so for myself and for you, SearchTelecom.com rings in 2010 with the top five telecom industry trends for 2010 from the venerable Tom Nolle, who sees a market transformation ahead due to commoditization pressure, wireless data services, vendor-supplied professional services, service layer architecture, and the merging of network and IT infrastructure into a common cloud.
As for me, I’m going to go reread the last page of Gone with the Wind for the 15th time and hope Rhett doesn’t leave this time.
