This weekend was an birthday of sorts for this website. Three years ago Saturday I wrote my first article on Telecom Ramblings, which happened to be a financial model for Level 3. I never imagined that I’d still be here 1,946 articles later, let alone that so many people would be reading them, responding to them, and helping me make sense of it all. Thank you to everyone out there for hanging out here with me.
Not everything has worked of course. The forums, now in hibernation again, simply never took off. Perhaps it’s that as Ramblings is by design primarily a vehicle for my voice (plus a few guest posters), it’s just not as suitable a platform for other conversations. I’ve considered starting a parallel site to run a forum on, and even bought a domain name for the concept. For now, it’s still on the drawing board along with a few other ideas, awaiting a combination of suitable software and elbow grease.
But I’m curious if anyone out there has any suggestions as to where I ought to take Ramblings from here? More tech, less tech. More financials, less financials. More interviews, less interviews. More opinions, or more detachment. More CDN, less CLEC, or whatever. Opinions?
