Hi Cashiers & 5thBeatle,

Well, I bought ITVU last spring at 68 and am still holding it. My general idea at the time was that streaming media was going to be very important(also an owner of RNWK too) and that this company had proprietary technology that positioned themselves very well. Since that time I saw the stock halved at one point and then much later climb to 160 only to fall back to where I bought at.

I wish I could say I had great insight into the AKAM issue here but the truth is that I am mostly only familiar with what ITVU does (and have found myself wondering if I should have got out at 160 because I`m not so sure where they stand in the "sustainable advantage" department ). After spending much more time looking my ATHM investment (that of course is a ride and a half there) I figure it`s time to reasses what I think of ITVU`s future.

Hoping this board gets more active,

Yours,
John
