Congratulations to Jeremiah Owyang on his new Web Strategy gig @ Forrester Research; as well to Forrester for scooping up someone with his prodigious research & blogging talents. Jeremiah will be a great fit with other top-notch analysts there such as Charlene Li & Josh Bernoff.
Both Jeremiah & Charlene are personal friends, and i've been fortunate to have them speak & moderate at tech conferences & user groups i've helped run such as last year's Web 2.0 Expo and the SDForum Search SIG. With luck, i'll still be able to get both of them to participate in future events too!
It's good to see a firm like Forrester adding talented bloggers to its research staff... they need more folks like Jeremiah & Charlene & Josh who blog regularly, to ensure they remain relevant as a resource for tech strategy & analysis. All too often great content & research gets buried behind paid access or subscription-only login, and unfortunately the companies that choose this web strategy are missing the Forrest(er) for the trees ;) Better to give away some valuable & insightful content, and use that to gain interest & clients for higher-end research.
