Fifteen and a half years later, I’m celebrating blog post number 3000. Most of the posts track trends and issues in Canadian telecommunications, and there are occasional diversions into innovation and technology policy. Of course, once in a while, I have been known to get sidetracked with areas of personal interest, such as food.
Fifteen years of writing a blog; 3000 blog posts; more than 50,000 tweets; 25 years of consulting; 40 years working in telecommunications. Each of these milestones can be cause for celebration. And let’s face it, this is a period in time that could use virtually any reason to celebrate. Virtually.
After all, over the past 16 months of COVID-induced isolation, how many personal milestones have been missed by so many of us unable to see family members, friends or colleagues from work?
So, I am happy to mark this occasion with you virtually. In most of Canada, it is cause for a holiday weekend. Take tomorrow off and tell your boss you’re celebrating my 3000th blog post. I’d be interested in hearing their response.
In any case, thanks for stopping by. Be sure to have some cake and ice cream before you go.
