But predators are hunters by nature -- although thinking of Randy Stephenson as Oliver Wendell Douglas is pretty funny.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
As Jeff Lewis from Comcast said here this AM, they'd rather hunt than farm. That means they are constantly hunting for new business. By definition, the incumbent isn't a hunter. 

I give cable guys credit for seeing the opportunities and going after them aggressively.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
Being first is nice, but I'd say the cable guys are putting more energy into what they're doing. That's a big change from where the industry was just a few years ago, when Alan B. started this event series.

Re: Funhouse mirrors
I can't disagree with cable's energy here but in fairness, every major telecom incumbent had an SD-WAN service ahead of the cable guys.

Cable operators are bringing a ton of energy to the business services sector, while incumbents seem mired in lethargy. We live in interesting times, indeed.
