From the Editor

I am pleased to share with you changes in the editorial staff at Marketing Techie.  Anas Mustafa, the outgoing associate editor has accepted a position as financial analyst at Frontier Airlines.  Mr. Mustafa has served well in his role, but as he wraps up his MBA degree, it is time for a career change.

Please welcome Bhushan Gosavi as the new associate editor.  Mr. Gosavi is pursuing his MBA at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and is eager to step into his new role.

The pace at Embry-Riddle slows for the summer, I will be traveling and Mr. Gosavi is learning new skills.  So, Marketing Techie and the newsletter will continue to operate abet at a reducing level for the next couple of months.

Message from the Editor

Welcome to Marketing Techie 2.0
We are excited to take over the publication of the newsletter and web site.  If you are a long-term subscriber, you will note several changes.  The first maybe the appearance of the website.  We have established a new web domain, using WordPress blogging software.  Please take a moment, go to and follow the blog.
We endorse and will continue the philosophy of entrepreneurship, technology and marketing as stated by the founding editor Glenn Omura.  But the second change you might notice is an evolution of coverage. Under Glenn’s editorship, web marketing was highlighted.  While web marketing will continue to be covered, as the newsletter continues to evolve other areas of technological innovation, such as the commercialization of space, will receive coverage.
We also ask for a bit of grace as we develop into our roles as publisher and editor.  We intend to continue the weekly “push” newsletter but it is possible we may have technical glitches.  We’ll try to keep the editorial glitches to a minimum, and look forward to your feedback.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve this community of shared interests.  Thanks to Glenn for trusting us with his creation.  To quote a famous voyager “to infinity and beyond”.
Best regards,
Michael Bowers

Message from Glenn

To our mtechie subscribers,
I’m sure you’ve been wondering when mtechie would start back up this fall.   This is to inform you of an exciting change.  I have been publisher and editor since 1996 (seriously!), and I’m sure you would agree its time for new blood and new ideas.  To this end, I have asked, and received gracious acceptance, from Michael Bowers to assume the role of Publisher and Editor of mtechie.  The academic quality will continue as Mike is Professor of Entrepreneurship at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.   The first change will be obvious:  a new WordPress template.  The one we’ve been using was hand-coded back in 1996!  Mike is committed to the original mission of mtechie, but I’m sure he’ll have his own ideas of how to shape it to better serve our subscribers. Please do take the time to follow and continue receiving mtechie.  In the near future, I hope to be in the content of stories reported in mtechie, as opposed to the writer of stories.
