TELECOM TIMES – DIGITAL HEALTH MONITOR
>> Due to personal and health complications, the Editor regrets having to confirm that DHM/TT will not be an option he can single-handedly manage or even oversee.
I thank all of you who, during the demise of so much that was good in my life, were yet able to find it within themselves to still see the outlines of the person who once upon a time revelled in each new day, PD or no PD, knowing he would be somewhere in the world, reporting on something – all the while connected with a group of outstanding individuals, comprising wonderfully supportive PR wizards, consummate critical comms captains, colourful CEOs, remarkable regulators and Communications Ministers, elegant and easy-going event planners – as well as that loyal unique Band of Telco Journos on the Run who, quite honestly to my enduring surprise, invariably seemed to really want to be part of TT.
I thought it was amazing right from the start. I knew of course this was one phoenix that took off with a bit of a shudder and a tremor in the first place ..
And .. just want to end it by expressing in a completely ‘hinged’ fashion for once, my gratitude to the inimical Petroc Wilton for fathoming some quality worth uncovering to begin with.
Que sera, sera ..
Thank you all most sincerely,
Richard James van der Draay,
Owner/Founder – TELECOM TIMES
Most of my long-suffering readers will be familiar with my website mutterings on The Richard of Oz.
Digital Health Monitor, a new online platform published under the Stealth Publications imprint, aims to provide semi-regular updates on developments in the crucible where tech and telco impact beneficially on the fields of medicine, health and well-being.
This is a continuation of the point at which Telecom Times was compelled to cease publication following my last ever appearance in person at an invitational telco event in Amsterdam in June 2019.
During a one-one-one interview with NBN Co chief executive Stephen Rue, I found to my great shock and surprise that my speech capabilities had deteriorated to the extent I could no longer justify accepting media interview offers of any kind.
Part of Stealth Publications, DHM as well as ROZ, The Parkinsonian, Mobility Matters, The Critical Communicator and any other of my remaining endeavours, is designed to be a non-profit venture – not a business – with all funds and/or incentives raised intended to be used at the discretion of R. van der Draay, for the advancement of ROZ in the widest sense, including any previously stated objectives as well as any current and/or future associated platforms and outlets.
