Welcome to Precursor®

Proven Thought Leadership

Precursor's Forthright ForesightTM consulting service offers mitigation strategies to help Fortune 500 companies' C-suite anticipate, analyze, and alleviate emergent cyber systemic risk in time.

In the past, Precursor® correctly identified, well in advance, the existential risks of some of the largest corporate failures ever, such as WorldCom, Global Crossing, Lucent, Nortel, and Motorola.

Now cyber systemic risks are proliferating faster than ever before because of the virtual and actual world's increasingly diverging economics, politics, freedoms, capabilities, playing fields, standards, rules, and limits.

Corporate C-suites must become much more forward thinking and proactive about understanding and confronting the real Internet-driven blindside risks that their enterprises face, while they still have time to mitigate them.

Precursor LLC is an emergent enterprise risk consultancy for Fortune 500 companies. It is based in the Washington DC area.

Three Decades of Precursor® Thought Leadership

2013-Present: Emergent Risk of the De-Americanization of the Internet

  • First analyst to discern the seminal inflection point in Internet history when America's Internet dominance peaked and US actions/policies ensured America's global Internet franchise would fall into decline and increasingly limit America's overseas Internet growth potential.

2012-Present: Emergent Risk of Obsolete Communications Law and Spectrum Management
Spearheading urgency for U.S. to modernize communications law and spectrum management for the needs of the 21st Century:

  • First analyst to make the comprehensive case of why and how U.S. communications law is obsolete and dysfunctional requiring total modernization.
  • First analyst to expose the USG's scandalous spectrum hoarding and dysfunctional spectrum management where no one is responsible for "minding the store" of a trillion dollar resource.

2007-Present: Emergent Cyber Systemic Risks from Google Dominance & Bad Acts
Spearheading the Google accountability movement per Google's monopoly, anti-competitive behavior and bad acts:

  • Founded GoogleMonitor.com, the world's first comprehensive Google watchdog site.
  • Authored first critical Google book: Search & Destroy, Why You Can't Trust Google Inc.
  • Testified three times before U.S. Congressional Subcommittees on Google antitrust/privacy.
  • Government's on four continents have sought out or used Precursor's Google research.

2006-Present: Emergent Risks to Facilities-Based Broadband Competition
Spearheading thinking and principled opposition to net neutrality-related legislation/price regulation as a cyber systemic risk:

  • Founded NetCompetition® the first e-forum to unify the facilities-based broadband industry in opposition to a return to failed FCC managed-competition policies.
  • First analyst to identify/describe the emergent ideological movement promoting net neutrality; and to describe the 21st century cyber-ideology of "codism."

2001-2003: Emergent Cyber Systemic Risks of 2002 Dotcom Bubble Bursting
Spearheaded early thinking of what the Dotcom bubble bursting would mean:

  • First analyst to warn investors that Internet data traffic was growing ~12 times slower than the market assumed, six months before the market lost $4 trillion in value.
  • First analyst invited to testify before Congress to explain the multiple regulatory and financial frauds, behind fiber backbone bankruptcies like WorldCom & Global Crossing.

1997-2002: Emergent FCC Managed-Competition Failure
Spearheaded early thinking about the cyber systemic risk of FCC-managed/subsidized competition:

  • First analyst to predict DOJ would block the WorldCom-Sprint merger, and WorldCom would go bankrupt prompting the largest US bankruptcy at the time and big Sarbanes-Oxley reforms.
  • First analyst to accurately predict that the FCC's managed competition policies of heavy price subsidies favoring CLEC local competitors would result in mass CLEC bankruptcies.

1993-1997: Emergent Communications Competition
Spearheaded early thinking about the competitive impact of the seminal 1996 Telecommunications Act:

  • First analyst to accurately predict and explain over time that: Congress would change telecom law from monopoly to competition; the "Baby Bells" would consolidate; and changes in media ownership rules would yield 1000+ radio station groups.
