Newest News is a Book

I'm one of several authors of an upcoming book on Hacking Wireless Networks. The book is scheduled to hit the shelves in September 2004, and I'll post updates here as the date approaches.



US Spectrum Policy

I've recently joined the Parallel Spectrum Management Task Force led by Andy Seybold and Barney Dewey which is developing an alternate spectrum management plan for recommendation to the US Federal Spectrum Management Task Force recently created by presidential memo. The PSMTF will work with all existing not-for-profit and other public and private organizations presently working on spectrum initiatives - consumers, businesses, public network operators, state and local governments, broadcasting and amateur radio operators - and will address the growing needs of the computer and consumer electronics industries for unlicensed spectrum. The PSMTF has less than a year to develop a plan which will consider the needs and requirements of all spectrum users.
For an introduction to the issues and concerns of spectrum availability, use and creation of open spectrum as critical, see the Open Spectrum FAQ by David Weinberger.

The Carrier Crisis

Invited talk discussing the shortcoming of current wireless data strategies which focus on the carriers/operators. Once wireless data providers enable user-created information and services, the industry is poised to expode in a way that makes the Internet boom look like a single droplet in a stream. Think SMS - the up and coming MMS - think camera phones and moblogging. These user content creation services are wildly popular, revenue positive and ARPU enhancing worldwide.
