"Could all-optical Internet become a reality? What is the future of network management? Can Linux really give Microsoft a run for its money? ITworld.com and InfoWorld provide you with these answers and a host of other insights, in an interactive webcast series, Live From the Ether, featuring noted columnist and technology pundit Bob Metcalfe. Launched earlier this month, ITworld.com - the IT problem-solving network(TM) - begins webcasting this weekly series, every Wednesday, starting today, at 1:00 pm EST at http://www.itworld.com/metcalfe."

"Said Bill Reinstein president and CEO of ITworld.com, 'For years, Bob Metcalfe's widely read predictions on Internet security and privacy, the telcos, Linux, and Internet stocks have provided him with a loyal following of IT professionals and placed him in the pantheon of tech pundits. As such, this webcast series featuring Metcalfe will serve as a unique reflection of the real-time insight that we bring to the site's visitors on an ongoing basis and another reason why ITworld.com is the Internet's premier IT problem-solving network.' "

"In each informative half-hour show of this joint arrangement, Metcalfe will address current trends as well as highlight companies and technologies that are reflective of his weekly InfoWorld column, "From the Ether." InfoWorld and InfoWorld.com define technology for business and focus on editorial coverage of key technologies, products, and trends to assist IT professionals in leveraging technology for business advantage. Each week, more than half a million U.S. information technology professionals read Metcalfe's internationally syndicated column. He has written on such germane topics as the pay-as-we-go Internet, dismantling telecom monopolies, and the role of governments in shaping the convergence of technology markets. Each webcast will be based on his InfoWorld column that will appear online on Saturday (prior to the Wednesday webcast at http://www.infoworld.com/metcalfe), in print on Monday, and as an e-mail on Tuesday."
