From APRICOT 2009 to Next Generation Company and Teleportation!
So I participated at APRICOT 2009 in Manila, IPv4 address exhaustion and IPv6 were plenary topics and generated lots of debates and dynamic discussions only to affirm the importance of this topic in the industry.Additionally, speaking with customers locally, there is quite an interest in competitive business models and service monetization examples, this is no surprise really; with the macroeconomic and financial sensitivities comes the natural requirements, to both generate revenue and be profitable.So I am back in the future, listening to Cisco CEO John Chambers speak about the “Building the Next Generation Company: Innovation, Talent and Excellence,” October 15 2008 at MIT, and I could not help noticing John mentioning the use of “holograms” during his presentation.With my frenetic schedule, I often like to think the cool thing after Cisco TelePresence is Teleportation.Are we so far? Well I am re-reading the book by Michio Kaku, entitled, Physics of the Impossible, A Scientific Exploration of the World of Phases, Force fields, Teleportation and Time Travel.Albert Einstein’s quote…
“If at first an idea does not sound absurd then there is no hope for it“
…is most appropriate under this context of these so called impossibilities.It’s not postulating out of the box per se, but a notion that there is no box at all. Think about the impact of these emerging technologies on the way we expect to communicate and collaborate – no boundaries!In my last blog posting, I spoke about cloud computing, and asked where you are in the cloud.Ok, where are you in this journey of impossibilities?
