2:00 PM -- Bring a colleague to Light Reading's "The Future of Sonet" conference (Nov. 16 & 18) and we'll let them in for free. Unless they smell weird.
Until Nov. 12, we are offering all qualified registrants the opportunity to invite a colleague to our Sonet event at no charge.
The regular price for this event is $500. But if you are employed by a service provider, financial institution, or VAR, or are a network professional at a large enterprise, educational establishment, utility, or government agency, you may qualify for free admission, provided you confirm your attendance by Friday, November 12, 2004.
Think of it... If you got a job as a network planner at a giant phone company, went to the events in both cities, and brought a colleague to each event, your savings could be as high as $2,000. So it should be obvious by now that I don't have a future in marketing...

Machine learning is primed to help service providers run more efficient and effective networks, but first the good ideas have to make their way from the lab to the real world – and that's a big challenge, according to the University of Chicago's Nick Feamster.
