Nice props
Good summary, Mitch. Though I'm having trouble concentrating on the content with the lamp from A Christmas Story and the old phone in the background. Nothing says telecom innovation like a rotary phone...

Death of Portals
Great summary Mitch.  I've been calling a trend in content providing Death of the Portal.  That is, you used to have places like Yahoo where everyone came to for their content, online games, social networking.  Back then there were a million and one ISPs.  Today broadband is only supplied by a few and getting less every quarter.

Meanwhile, the change in the way we create applications and their interdependence on remote functions (like identity, credit processing) means that more people can rent real estate on a server and cobble together what they need, rather than having everyone come to a single portal for all content.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
