EDITORIAL OPPORTUNITIES
TMCnet.com accepts writing from vendors, industry pundits, analysts, and anyone else with intelligent commentary on the industries we cover. We run contributed bylined articles each month based on a variety of topics pertinent to our readership, as outlined below. E-mail TMCnet for more information.

OUR READERS
TMCnet.com's readership comprises telecom, datacom, and call center managers; developers and systems integrators; distributors and resellers; VARs and interconnects; MIS departments and other technology managers; plus telcos, cable companies, and all types of service providers.

TMCnet.com imparts information that will help readers become voice and data communications technology advocates (who will justify purchasing decisions) and participants (who will make these technologies work in any given implementation -- whether it be call centers, the central office, or a corporate enterprise). When addressing our audience, emphasize the practical and the technological. As with our other TMC products, we aim to enrich the reader's overall knowledge of the computer telephony and call center technology industries, including emerging technologies, market trends, and business opportunities.

STYLE
We recognize that satisfying our audience requires authors to prepare material of significant technical depth. Further, as content becomes more technical, it necessarily becomes less generic and more vendor-specific. Nonetheless, we reject a highly commercial or "advertorial" approach. Rather, we embrace a more formal, restrained, white paper or how-to tone.

We encourage our writers to take advantage of the online medium by including hypertext in their articles. Please include links to or the URLs for the Web sites of standards bodies, industry organizations, analyst reports, etc.

IMPORTANT
Your article should be comprehensive, original, and noncommercial. In all likelihood, you will have to describe what is unique about your technology. But stay technical. Avoid superlatives (the "best," the "only," etc.). We reject blatantly commercial material.
