"Discovery consists of seeing what everybody
has seen and thinking what nobody has thought."
- Albert Szent-GyÃ¶rgyi
The man who said those words knew of what he spoke. A Nobel Laureate, Szent-GyÃ¶rgyi performed groundbreaking research on biophysics of muscle movement, explored the relationship between free radicals and cancer, and is credited with discovering Vitamin C. The sentiment, however, reaches far beyond his field, and has an impact on all fields of research in which innovation is crucial. Naturally, that includes the wide world of communications, which have seen massive changes through the years as the result of innovative thinking on the part of carriers, vendors, an even subscribers, all of whom are changing the bounds of what is possible all the time.
As technology changes, and as subscribers change with it, innovation is appearing in all corners of the industry. All parties directly involved in the communications value chain are striving to deliver more services in a more efficient way than ever before. Every player is looking for a way to see the same puzzle and solve it in a new way.
I also wanted to take the time to note that this is the first issue in Pipeline's ninth volume. It's hard to believe it's been that long since Pipeline began, and I want to thank all of our readers and sponsors for supporting us for these many years. We look forward to many issues and many volumes to come.
