About the Author
Harry Newton has 30 years in telecommunications. He founded LAN (now Network) Magazine, the first networking magazine. He founded three leading monthly telecom magazines -- Call Center, Computer Telephony and Teleconnect. He also founded the enormously successful trade show, Computer Telephony Conference and Exposition (CT Expo). He is (of late) a successful angel (early venture capitalist) in telecom, networking and Internet ventures. Recently he started a monthly newsletter, Harry Newton's Technology Investor. For a subscription, go to Technology Investor. Newton holds an MBA from the Harvard Business School and undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Sydney, Australia. He is not an engineer. But he knows enough to be dangerous in front of them. And that, he says, is the ultimate thrill.
