IP Multimedia Subsystem on FT-IT Review
By MortazaviBlog on Apr 06, 2005
When I was a graduate student doing general research in the areas of computational fluid dynamics and physics of fluids, my advisor used to say that if a field of enquiry had made it to The New York Times Tuesday science column, it was time to get out of that field because it had become too mature and advanced for pure research.
This Wednesday, talk of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) seems to have arrived on the pages of Financial Times' IT Review (Paul Taylor, "Testing Time for Operators in a Brave New World," FT April 6, 2005, Page6). That simply means that IMS has now become officially perceived and recognized as a mature, stable technology. We have known about its advance and have been following it keenly but now, the readers of the FT will also be exposed to it. That's FT-IT Review for you, and it shows that FT writers are at least keeping their eyes on the ball.
(Also of note, in this week's FT-IT Review, is the announcement that Dan Gillmor has joined FT's team of columnists.)
