What's in a name, Dick Van Dyke?

ECOC Suckers

4:40 PM -- There's a reason why Light Reading doesn't run an event about Internet Protocol Infomation Systems & Software. It's the same reason we cancelled our much anticipated conference on SNA Telecom Chips and Hardware.

So how come the the organizers of ECOC have still not gotten the message?

Like ripping a giant fart in the middle of a business meeting, giving your optical networking event a name that sounds like the slang for a John Thomas is just not done. And yet... They've been doing it for 32 years.

This year's ECOCK event takes place in the Cannes and promises an agenda literally throbbing with deadly dull data on optical networking bits and bobs.

But, alas, we might go again this year, even though we know it'll be a flaccid event. Perhaps we should cover the show? We could produce a Daily Optical Networking Guide, right?
