Back at Qualcomm

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to let everyone know that after three and a half years of doing startups, I have returned to Qualcomm. I am working in their middleware services group and managing their web administrators.

It’s an exciting time to be in the wireless space. Apple has demonstrated that the laptop is passé and “important” computer now fits in your pocket.

Qualcomm is involved in almost every aspect of the wireless industry so I think I am in for some fun times. If you want to check out what they are doing, they have some great videos at

Rocketeers: How a Visionary Band of Business Leaders, Engineers, and Pilots is Boldy Privatizing Space

Michael Belfiore
In the ‘second space age’, human spaceflight is no longer the domain of governments. Dream-chasing entrepreneurs and clever engineers are aggressively blazing new trails into the heavens and preparing the world for an era of space tourism, ultra fast point-to-point earth travel and even orbiting hotels. Having gained inside access into the top private space programs, science journalist Michael Belfiore will share his many insights on the history-making flights, the failures and fatalities, as well as the enduring passion and dreams of the real estate tycoons, dot-com billionaires, a video game programmer and other business mavericks for whom the sky is no longer the limit. They are fueling the highest-flying private rockets ever built, testing ‘vertical dragsters’, and preparing to launch an inflatable space station – with the mock-up already in earth orbit. Can your ticket to ride be that far behind?
