I didn't participate, but there are plenty of good insights here from folks who work closely with IT and have first hand knowledge about how these developments are playing out. Of course, there's a huge generational shift happening, and it's no different than the divide in telecom between legacy Bellheads and today's Internet-savvy engineers.

So, if that's got you on the edge of your seat, then hop over to UCStrategies now. Michael Finneran is the host, and has also provided a transcript if you'd rather just read instead.
