Monday Morning Notes - Bill Owens Leaves Nortel, Hall of Fame News, and Mark Evans hits 1,000

Just a quick post on some items of note, but they're not about baseball!

Am about to head down to the Telemanagementlive conference here in Toronto. I'll be presenting there tomorrow, but the big story today is the Canadian Telecom Hall of Fame Gala taking place later tonite. They will be honoring Canada's "leaders and pioneers" of telecom, so there should be a strong feel-good vibe happening there. I'll post my impressions of the event later on.

On the news front, Mark Evans reports first thing today that Bill Owens is leaving Nortel. Given all the fuss about the 2 Garys from Cisco, it's interesting to see that barely 5 months later, Mr. Owens is going. Maybe now is the time for John Chambers to make a move.

Speaking of Mark Evans, congratulations are in order. Mark has reached the 1,000 posting milestone, which is a lot of blogging. Way to go, Mark - you continue to break the best stories up here - and sometimes elsewhere - and folks, if you're not following Mark's blog, you should be.
