Industry analysts have been very slow to adopt blogs. What is even sadder is that the ones who cover blogging software companies don’t even blog themselves. Blogs present a fundamental cultural change for the analyst business. Analyst business processes assume analysts have control of interactions with clients and research subjects. Blogs are diametrically opposed to this notion. The ones that do blog are deathly afraid of turning on trackback because people may find viable fault in their research. — James McGovern
