Mike Nikolich passed this article along to me and I thought it was worth sharing. It comes from the Knowledge Capital Group's AR Insider newsletter.
One thing I find interesting is their evaluation that most analysts are not bloggers. I would tend to agree, and would add that most analysts who do blog tend to cover Web 2.0 and blogging as a topic. In other words, Forrester has a GroundSwell blog to which a few of its analysts contribute, but they don't tend to have blogs on other technologies.
In any case, if you want to read the article click below the "fold."
Wow, what a great case study in FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt). The perfect storm for making AR folks cringe - an unaccountable, uncontrollable, zero barriers to entry channel for virtually anybody to say things (good or bad) about your companies, products and policies. Wow, scary stuff.
