Congrats to Jeremiah who’s blog turns 2 today. I hired Jeremiah when I was running PodTech because of his ability but also his vision.  My wife Linda and I value Jeremiah’s friendship since we both left PodTech.

Why I think Jeremiah is doing great work.  He practices what he preaches.  He’s pragmatic but tries new stuff.  Most importanly he shares, innovates, and listens.  At PodTech many thought Jermemiah shouldn’t be  blogging.  I stood my ground and supported Jeremiah because he was doing it right.  He supported my vision while others didn’t agree (I can’t wait to write the case study post on what really happened at PodTech).  I’m sure folks even at Forrester might say that Jeremiah is giving away valuable research that could be monetized…Sure thats and position someone can take, but I submit that Forrester will sell more research at higher prices by keeping the blogging going.. it build a community.  Congrats Jeremiah.

Here are some of his secrets.

It is a private victory for me to see you continue to push the envelope while being a practitioner and analyst at the same time. That’s Sweetness. Not only that but it makes me smile because our personal conversations years ago about where social media was going was on the money…

Continue to share and research and try new things… I’m almost complete with some of my recent research which I’ll share with you soon.

Hi Furrier,
I am curious. So is it possible for you to give hint on what exactly you do research on. From your blog I got a hint that you were part of Windows team; it seems you also drove PodTech.
