The article presents an interview with Time Warner Cable Inc.'s chief technology officer, Mike LaJoie. He replied to the query related to the embers of the Full Service Network (FSN) that are alive and well today, that if one thinks about how technology advancement is made and how they actually productize new technology development, the FSN is a very interesting example. He said that they put together a very, very aggressive network for the time. It was an all-digital network. It had switching in it. He replied to another query related to their experience in pursuing, testing and implementing the new technology, that people take a couple of different approaches. One approach is that one maybe just waits for things to happen. Another is that there can be a method to creativity, a discipline around innovation.
