Capacity Glut at the Backbone Doesn't Mean the Market for Optical Switching Technology Is Saturated
TRG's Director of Technical Assessment Dr. Scott Moore Argues that Optical Networking Equipment Requirements for Metropolitan Area Networks Are Far From Sated

Yet, there is an enormous unfulfilled market in metropolitan area networks (MAN) that presents an enduring opportunity for optical telecomms manufacturers and network developers.
Digital Media Provokes Rethinking of Copyright's Boundaries
TRG's Director of Research and Blue Spike CEO Scott Moskowitz Ask How Copyright Can Be Protected Without Destroying Market-Cultivating Fair Use

Automated Payment Schemes = e-Commerce That Pays

With a great deal of the technology falling in price and the Internet providing a common channel for interactivity, the dream of ITV seems not so fantastic any more. Most of the technical issues are solved problems - though the remaining standards issues are troubled fields of contest.
