Optical components

OFC: Georgio Sighting

3:30 PM -- SAN DIEGO -- OFC/NFOEC -- Ran into Georgio Anania outside the convention center yesterday afternoon.

Anania, of course, is the former CEO of Bookham Inc. (Nasdaq: BKHM; London: BHM) who's now in a kind of retirement. He's been advising a few companies, he says, and, of course, he joined the board of Cube Optics AG last year. (See Anania Returns.)

He didn't sound surprised that the mood at the The Optical Society (OSA) executive forum was so glum. (See Troubles Linger for Optical Components.) Nor that there's been little consoldiation in the components industry -- no one's got the guts, as he explained in our interview last year. You'll find the full Q&A here. — Craig Matsumoto, West Coast Editor, Light Reading
