Far off
"this stuff is pretty much pie in the sky right now"

Indeed, most of the telecom execs I speak to about SONs and similar areas (1) have and/or acknowledge vastly different definitions for SONs and "intelligent networks" in the industry, (2) note that we're quite far away from this vision, and/or (3) seem to have little idea what I'm talking about.

This conversation is getting silly. I'm off to nail some jelly to the wall.

Re: Componentry?
As a wise old copy editor (as if there were any other kind) once advised, know the language of the tribe. Virtualized functions run on components, but referring to those functions as componentry does not comply with the idiom of this particular tribe.

Plus: it didn't strike me as wrong. It's hard copy editing in a foreign language, you know.

Re: Componentry?
As an emeritus member of the Copy Desk Academy, I take issue with your hand-washing in this matter. I remember getting the most pleasure out of thankless tasks by correcting things that came from on high.

Re: Componentry?
Oi, leave the copy desk out of it. This came to us from on high and is no sillier than many other words we assured are common parlance on Planet Telecom.
