Telecosm IX

I spent some time last week at Telecosm IX. Good times. But, I'm thinking that the event might need some renaming. Is the "telecosm" truly where all the action is still at today? The reality, in my opinion, is that we're seeing less *fantastic* innovation in the telecom industry that we are seeing in the media & applications business.
How about something like Mediacosm?

The stupid network seems to have arrived. Well, mostly arrived. Now what? A stupid wireless network? A stupid enterprise?
