OK, so maybe I consider myself a Telecom Junky these days. I’ve been listening to these podcasts from The Voice Report for a while. They’re mostly aimed at enterprise concerns beyond SOHO scale but the most recent one on disaster recovery is very interesting.
They include on the call the telecom manager from the New Orleans airport speaking about disaster recovery and planning post hurricane Katrina. This is really interesting stuff. Even home office dwellers can take a lesson from the matters being discussed. Planning in advance is critical.
I feel a particular affinity towards New Orleans. Not only because it’s a great town and I also live in hurricane alley. But because WWL-TV are a customer and good friends of mine. They are the local TV station that stayed on-air through Katrina, even as they relocated to Baton Rouge. They’re a fine example of what local broadcasting is supposed to be about. Service to the public. They were positively heroic.
