2005 Paging Persons of the Year

paging persons

Please note that was no “criteria” for being selected to appear on this Magazine Cover as one of the 2005 Paging Persons of the Year. The photos were selected from those that I could find on my computer and a few that I found on the Internet. Please don't feel bad or get angry with me if you are involved in Paging and your photo does not appear here. There was no hidden agenda or political motivation involved in this selection—just a fun tribute to some people in the paging business.

OK, here is my first correction. I thought of Jay Moskowitz when I was doing the "front cover" but didn't have a photo of him. Now I do, so here he is . . .

Jay Moskowitz

The Wireless Messaging Newsletter
FRIDAY - APRIL 16, 2004 - ISSUE NO. 108

In last week's newsletter, I asked if anyone would like to offer an opinion piece on why RIM is succeeding in markets where the ReFLEX devices are not. I got a very interesting response from Jay Moskowitz which follows. I have known Jay for a long time. I think if I had to count the people on one hand, that know the most about paging and wireless messaging, Jay would be one of the fingers.
