replace not converge

I managed to find the time to go and read Om’s post and also the Essay by Daniel Berninger

The much noted convergence of data and voice networks really amounts to a hostile takeover of communication by the information technology sector. The Internet did not get invented to displace the PSTN, but continuous improvement makes this outcome inevitable. The info tech czars like Bill Gates and Andy Grove are loathe to explicitly challenge the telecom incumbents, but the information technology solutions will replace not converge with the traditional telephone networks.

that’s pretty clear then, but I wouldn’t call Bill a czar,but anyway, it all continues to point in the direction we think the industry is going.
