About the Author


Newton works on this dictionary every day of the year, He adds new terms. He updates old terms, He sees this "dictionary" as a combination dictionary/encyclopedia/history/story of the industry. He wants the dictionary to be the definitive record of the industry's progress. Newton entered telecommunications forty six years ago. He started consulting and quickly learned that the industry lacked up-to-date information. (The Internet had not yet been invented.) He went on to create six successful telecommunications magazines -- Teleconnect, Call Center, Computer Telephony, Imaging, LAN (later called Network Magazine), and Telecom Gear. He also founded the immensely successful shows Call Center Demo, and the Computer Telephony Conference and Exposition, which at its peak attracted 26,000 people to the Los Angeles Convention Center. He also published over 47 books on networking, imaging, telecommunications and computer telephony.

Newton has an economics degree from the University of Sydney and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.
