So, I did my best sour-grapes impression when I lamented the fact that nobody from Cisco was on PC World’s “Most Important People on the Web” but that Perez Hilton and others, in the eyes of PC World, are more important than anybody at Cisco. Wired magazine this month came out with their 10th Annual Top 40 Most Innovative Companies in the World and Cisco, naturally, is on the list. We are #8 (up from #12 last year) and while I may disagree, of course, with the fact that we are not #1…not everybody can be the #1 on every list. They write: “As the petabits surge, Cisco keeps outflanking cut-rate competitors and surfing the flood of online video. VoIP gear and set-top boxes contribute to ’90s-style earnings growth. Now CEO John Chambers hopes to sell the world on wall-size, hi-def telepresence.” For more on TelePresence, see my previous blog entry…or see here.
