MCI (not WorldCom) has the right plan

Interop still has plenty of life in it

Don’t write off the NetWorld+Interop trade show just yet. Editor-in-Chief John Dix explains that last week’s exhibition may have been smaller than in recent years – yes, much smaller – but it was still quite vital.

Where messaging is key

In the world of operating system marketing, this week’s winner is Microsoft and this week’s loser is Novell. Novell’s CEO contradicted himself, while Microsoft’s CEO managed to avoid doing a monkey boy dance, says Dave Kearns.

The case for complexity

Security is something that shouldn’t be simple. If it’s too simple, it’s too easy to break. Network World Events Editor Sandra Gittlen gives a preview of our Security Technology Tour that promises to help you embrace complexity in your network’s security systems.
