There's going to be a 24-hour tournament on June 16, with a grand prize of $10,000... and an ASR 1002 router. The router is apparently worth a lot more than $10,000, but it won't be much help as you try to psych up your gamer nephew to be your ringer in the tournament.
I've only tried the game once so far. With my Tetris-era mad skillz, I managed a whopping 320 points before getting the "mission failed" message. The sun got in my eyes.
You have until June 11 to build up a qualifying score for the tournament. Hey, it beats the Cupid/Easter-Bunny/unicorn-lady promotion. I'm thinking the Vyatta Inc. guys ought to work on their chops to try to win this thing.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it.

This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
