My Invitation Must Have Been Blocked Or Degraded.

So my old friends at the National Cable Telecommunications Association (NCTA) are doing a blogger outreach event today. Oddly, I was not invited. No doubt my invitation was blocked or degraded.

I never get this crap from Verizon.

Stay tuned . . . .


  1. <nag> Maybe they’re waiting to see what you tell us all about what you saw at the “Big Tent” blogger affair in Denver! </nag>

  2. I would say that you – SHOULD – be included, as you do seem to have more of a finger on the pulse of this area than many others!


  3. Michael Turk, NCTA

    Harold –

    I sent this via your webmaster e-mail as well.

    We apologize to you and your readers for the oversight. Leaving you off was completely unintentional. I have copied below the list of invited attendees – just so you do not think this is intended to be a one-sided affair.

    We plan to do this again soon, and be sure we’ll get you on the list. I’m actually not sure where you’re located geographically. If you’re in the DC area and not doing anything this afternoon, please feel free to come by. We expect the conversation will last until about 4pm.

    Sorry again. We hope to see you next time (or later today if you can make it).
