2012 was a blur. I can’t believe the year is almost out. As is appropriate when faced with the Rapture and the End of days in the same year, we’re doing a bit of a review today. Here are the top 10 posts, in no particular order, that I selected from my writings over the past year.
Check them out If you have time!
 The first selection is an article on our Northern Cousins from Waterloo: RIM. Sadly, the two-headed beast sitting atop the castle is no more, but there’s certainly a lot that’s still worth fixing up North. Check it out here!
 The second selection is about disaster recovery. If Sandy taught us anything, it’s that communication and customer awareness are of paramount importance during major cataclysmic events. Read it here!
 The third selection involves me correctly predicting the open-sourcing of patents. Check out my powers of prognostication here!
 The fourth selection is about Software defined networking and another correct prediction. As stated, Nicira represented market validation andit’s precisely the reason we’ve seen so much M&A activity in the space. Check it out here!
 The fifth selection is a policy piece on Google’s positioning with respect to Google Fiber. Read more here!
 The sixth selection is about Nokia and the ridiculous things they’ve done up North while trying to get back on track. Nokia should drop $MSFT, but one never knows… Read about Nokia dropping the ball here!
 The seventh selection is on the rationality of trust and identity with the current security climate. Hint: It’s not pretty. Read more about Identity and Authentication here!
 The eighth selection is about the ITU, and, specifically, who pays for bandwidth and why. Read it here! This was my most popular piece ever.
 The ninth selection is on Jaron Lanier and the nature of Reality. ‘Nuff Said. Read it here!
 The tenth and final selection is on the Audacity of Hope. Dare to dream.
It’s been a wonderful year, I am very thankful for where I am today. I look forward to another great year of writing. Thanks for reading my work and have a great holiday season!
