re: Light Reading's Top Ten Private Companies Force10 is not goin' make it. Too much money raised, clueless investors stuck in boom times, clueless management. All stacked up means after this money runs out they be done!

re: Light Reading's Top Ten Private Companies companies on your list. Their is a changing tide in how OEM's view new components. Cost considerations far exceed added functionality. For example: Tunable Lasers may be beneficial for sparing now in LH but based on their cost it is unlikely they will catch on in Metro. The problem of Laser channel selectivity is quickly disappearing in the C+L bands as the industries inventory correction is allowing vendors to catch up and improve their processes and lead times. Who will pay a 25%-50% premium for a tunable now?
Re-configurable networks are incredibly pricey and are probably the second phase for carriers after their 10yr ROI on today's technology. The point being their is inherently higher risk in a component company whether their product works or not. Also where's Quantum Bridge on your list - atleast they have filed for an IPO.

re: Light Reading's Top Ten Private Companies the record is so tainted, how can we have faith in any of LRs projections.

there is so little visibility on the private companies, its tough to comment.

last time i read the public companies list, avanex was first. does anyone really believe that anymore?

re: Light Reading's Top Ten Private Companies It looks like Tellium changed investment bankers and slashed their IPO price from $15-$13 to $10-$8. I wonder what the price per share for the last round of funding was?

re: Light Reading's Top Ten Private Companies Scott and Steve:

I think you have a good thing going with Light Reading. You offer opnionions in your articles I find interesting. I do think there is a negative tone sometimes, but I assume your readers understand that this is mere editorializing. At the same time, I have some concerns about your your affiliation with Lightspeed. Are they a VC? And what other companies do they fund?

A while back, someone wrote that Lightreading receives financial backing from Lightspeed and its partners. I am not going to jump to conclusions and say this is a conflict of interest. However, in one of these posting rooms, Scott Raynovich assured readers that Light Reading would publish its editorial policy and information on your relationship with Lightspeed.

I have not seen it yet, and I would like to very much. Have you posted it? And if so, where can I locate it on this site?

Thank you,
Joe B.
