First, a big thank you to everyone who sent well-wishes when I announced
that I was leaving Forrester. Your heartfelt comments, tweets, emails, and
calls were very much appreciated. Many people asked what I’m doing next, so
here’s a quick overview, on the first day of my new "work" life.
I’m going to be working as an independent thought leader, looking at how
emerging technologies impact business, organizations, and individuals and sharing my thoughts here on this blog as well as on Twitter, FriendFeed, Facebook, et. al. I’ll also be conducting interviews with companies about what’s happening in this space. On the business side, I’m offering a few commercial services, ranging from speeches to consulting for a limited set of clients.
As I mentioned in my departure post, a key reason I decided to leave Forrester was to seek greater control and balance in my life. To that end, I’m limiting how much I travel and the number of commercial engagements that I take on. This will leave me plenty of time to devote to blogging, tweeting, and most importantly, thinking about my passion, how emerging technologies are impacting our lives and businesses.
But to wit, I can’t do it alone. I’m counting on you to provide me with feedback, criticism, leads, tips, and ideas to move my thinking forward. So please stay in touch, subscribe to my blog feed, and let me know what I should be thinking about.
