Verion Wireless CEO Ivan Seidenberg: "The Marines landing on the beach aren't the ones who build the hospitals."

While much of Verizon's growth has come from the acquisition of other telecom companies, Seidenberg has shown a willingness to take risks too, investing $23 billion to deploy fiber-optic lines directly to consumers' homes to offer faster Internet and cablelike television services under the FiOS brand. Yet he still has a chip on his shoulder, especially when it comes to the cool kids of innovation.  

"It's easy for the Silicon Valley companies to look at us and say we have a low IQ," Seidenberg shrugs. "I think the world has changed, and they see a lot of investment that goes into networks and into developing products and services."

Gartner 2010 Hype Cycle

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Gartner has examined the maturity of 1,800 technologies and trends in 75 technology, topic, and industry areas.

The Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies features technologies that are the focus of attention in the IT industry because of particularly high levels of hype, or those that may not be broadly acknowledged but which Gartner believes have the potential for significant impact.

High-impact technologies at the Peak of Inflated Expectations during 2010 include private cloud computing, augmented reality, media tablets, wireless power, 3D flat-panel TVs and displays, and activity streams, while cloud computing and cloud/Web platforms have tipped over the peak and will soon experience disillusionment among enterprise users.
