The article presents a quiz for the readers of the journal "Telephony," about recent developments in the telecommunications industry in the U.S. One question was about the punishment expected to be given to former WorldCom Inc.'s CEO Bernie Ebbers, for the fraud charges relating to the carrier's $11 billion accounting scandal. A question was based on the new interoperability protocols announced by the top U.S. carriers Cingular Wireless LLC and Verizon Wireless. Another question was based on the resignation of Novell CTO Alan Nugent.
