re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom 1. You guys are seem a bit harsh on those that seem to have fallen from grace
2. Is there a typo in Really Horrible Haiku"? Is it supposed to be Hagger The Horrible?
3. I think you missed one more deserving entry in the "Has Been Bin". I would have included the lightreading staff member that had picked the previous top 10 movers and shakers :-)

re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom You admit that Lucent isn't performing well and yet you suggest we put Pat on our list because she's a woman?

Or because Fortune called her a powerful woman?

That sounds like the wrong thing to do for all the wrong reasons.

P.S. Fortune magazine called Enron "America's Most Innovative Company" for six consecutive years.

Is it just me, or are all of the links pointing to their staging area?

re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom It's shameful that Lightreading contributes to the sexism in the telecom industry by not including a single woman on the Top Ten list.

While Fortune has put Pat Russo on it's 10 Most Powerful Women in Business again this year, she apparently doesn't make LR's cut. Lucent might not be at the top of it's game, but it's a hell of lot better off after Pat's tough decisions that none of her predecessors had the balls to make.

LR editors - when are you going to wake up from your cozy British boy's club and realize that the rest of the world has moved on? Get with it, mates.

re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom you may disagree but Pat's tough decisions were made(are being taken) to ensure that she together with her ilks can continue to fill their pockets whilst a lot of talent may be queuing in the food line once their severance and unemployment run out.

What innovative or groung-breaking decisions has she taken so far to sustain the business ?
Zilch !

Hence she has no place in the top ten JMHO

re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom re: "Hey Phil -- aren't you from Texas?"

Yep.

re: "What's this 'cozy Brit boys club' that indica's talking about?"

Dunno. Maybe someone's been reading Orwell's "Burmese Days" and they think I'm Ellis.

re: Top Ten Movers and Shakers in Telecom
I would have nominated Pat Russo for perhaps the worst CEO in telecom. She needs to cut horrible businesses and move along. Yet, she refuses to do so at the peril of Lucent. Its still a dog, its shrinking and no obvious path to growth.

Get rid of the dead wood.
