2:30 PM -- Don't just sit there like a bump on a log. Do your family a favor and read The Philter today. It's made from all natural ingredients. It's lightweight and compact. And it won't break your budget the way ordinary telecom media blogs will.

Now in its 17th month and with more than 11 million posts*, The Philter is proving that not just anyone can start a blog. Sure lots of people out there think you'll want to read what they're writing, but they don't have Internet access AND a computer.

No one but The Philter staff has the considerable financial resources and technical expertise required to keep a computer running all day and all night. And that's why The Philter beats the competition hands down.

Go on, you know you can't resist. Try The Philter for yourself today at no charge. We've even created The Philter's own RSS feed so you can get your Philter Phix at home, at the office, or even in your car, while you're taking those good-for-nothing kids of yours to choir practice.

The Philter, now with its own RSS feed: If you don't read it, we're going to wish you had.

About the Author(s)

Phil Harvey

Editor-in-Chief, Light Reading

Phil Harvey has been a Light Reading writer and editor for more than 18 years combined. He began his second tour as the site's chief editor in April 2020.

His interest in speed and scale means he often covers optical networking and the foundational technologies powering the modern Internet.

Harvey covered networking, Internet infrastructure and dot-com mania in the late 90s for Silicon Valley magazines like UPSIDE and Red Herring before joining Light Reading (for the first time) in late 2000.

After moving to the Republic of Texas, Harvey spent eight years as a contributing tech writer for D CEO magazine, producing columns about tech advances in everything from supercomputing to cellphone recycling.

Harvey is an avid photographer and camera collector – if you accept that compulsive shopping and "collecting" are the same.
