Sometimes it just feels good to gloat. Kevin Leddy, Time Warner Cable svp, strategy and development, used his acceptance of the CTAM Chairman’s Award on Tues to ridicule former Ameritech chief Richard Notebaert’s appearance at the 1994 CTAM Summit. At that event, Notebaert basically said that cable didn’t know what it was doing on the marketing front (even vowing not to hire any cable marketers to help sell Ameritech’s then-planned video service). "Twelve years later, you couldn’t make a crow pie big enough for this guy to eat," said Leddy. "Now he’s over at Qwest and thinking about doing it again, which I think is great news for the cable industry." Ouch. That’s gotta hurt, Dick.
