Hello,
I am from PA and this photo surely does not look like Johnstown, PA - where was it taken?

re: 20 People Who Changed Tech: Irving Kahn
Great story and insights. I was wondering whether Irving Kahn crossed paths with John Rigas from Adelphia when they were both wiring Pennsylvania for cable. The Philadelphia Inquirer ran a full magazine story praising the Rigas family for everything they'd done in Coudersport, about a year before the Feds threw them in jail.

I'd also like to know who's responsible for the five minute blocks of commercials we're now subjected to on cable TV, except for TCM. What happened to the idea of paying for cable so we wouldn't have to watch so many ads? With commercials getting as long as the shows, Internet viewing looks better all the time.

Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
