12:45 PM -- Is the name Light Reading really too generic?

From The Philter mailbag, a request that makes us wonder if some readers have been huffing car fumes:

Hello Sales. I want to order for Traffic Light in your store. Traffic light, signal head and contro panel. I like to shipp to Nigeria, because my company down here is in need of it. I need the price quote. And this is legit and I will via my Bank. When payment is made, i need a total assurance that the product will get down here. Await your reply.

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.
