Just 15 minutes ago, the newest light in the world of communications blogs went live — Om Malik’s IPNetworked.Â According to Om:
IPNetworked is a blog that will exclusively track the telecom carriers, cable companies, Internet service providers, Web hosting services, and the data centers. Speed changes, legislative matters, price cuts, and IPTV â€“ it will cover a wide gamut of topics.
Why now? And how is it different? With the carriers and ISPs coming out of a deep sleep following the bust, it is a good time to start this blog. Carriers â€“ whether telecom operators or cable companies or new fangled fiber only service providers are in middle of a massive change. The data center business is also seeing a revival. This means increased news flow. It is hard to cover it all on one blog; and that is precisely why we are starting this new blog.
Leading the charge on this new blog is my dear friend, Russell Shaw, who is well known for writing about VoIP. (No he is not going to be writing about VoIP.) Working alongside him is Russell Heimlich, another blogger whose work has impressed me a lot.
CongratulationsÂ to Om and the Russell’s!
