One of Bill Gate's top financial officers, Greg Maffei, has recently left Microsoft in favour of a much smaller Vancouver-based company, Worldwide Fiber, a leading edge player in fiber-optic communications. Worldwide Fiber designs, builds and operates high-speed fiber-optic networks for communications carriers, Internet service providers and other companies.

Worldwide Fiber is planning to go public in the next few months. Its web page is http://www.wwfiber.com/

I think this will be an interesting company to follow.

What are some good links to follow regarding fiber-optics? Does anyone know anything about Worldwide Fiber and how their technology fits in with the communications networks? Does anyone know why Greg Maffei would want to leave Microsoft and what he wants to accomplish at Worldwide?

I know that Worldwide has not yet become a public company but with the recent additions of some high profile senior officers this company might take off quite quickly.

This is my first folder- kind of an exciting thing to do. It would be nice to have found a winner.

Patrick
