For those of you who are visiting SageCircle because you saw my quote in the Fortune article Web 2.0 gets down to business, welcome. SageCircle does a considerable amount of research on the use of social media within the context of IT industry analyst relations. You can find posts on this topic by clicking on “Social Media” under “Category List” in the left navigation bar. Here are some good posts to begin your search:
- Doing unto analysts what they do unto vendors
- Because analysts are increasingly using blogs as development platforms, AR has to participate to be part of theconversation
- Introducing SageCircle’s Fog ofInfluence
- Why social media scares the analyst firms and vendor ARteams
Now to answer a question I’ve just received from the CMO of an analyst firm: “Does your celebrity status now get you a better table at Buck’s?” If you are visiting SageCircle after reading the on-line story you missed the photo of me in Buck’s of Woodside that was in the print edition. Buck’s is a favorite haunt of VCs and Silicon Valley digerati. Well, I can hope for a better table, but having major publications use Buck’s as a backdrop is old hat for Jamis so I doubt it. If you have never visited Buck’s you can see it in the short video at Jeremiah Owyang interviews SageCircle’s Carter Lusher.
