I was just reading John Bristowe’s blog which alerted me to the fact that NewsGator 2.0 has been released. I’ve downloaded and installed it, so good so far. NewsGator works really well for me since I am such a heavy user of Microsoft Outlook. This is my first post using the .Text plug-in for NewsGator, it might take a little bit longer to get used to, although it might make me post more often. Is that good or bad?
Occasionally I get a ping via e-mail asking why I chose notgartner.com, especially since I don’t seem to have any content relating to that much quoted resource.
Well, I figured I might change that since the Gartner weblog has been trickle feeding us the 2004 predictions for a little while now and without a doubt these little perls of wisdom, will be quoted back to me over the next twelve months.
I don’t really have a major issue with Gartner, but you have to admit some of their material reads a little bit like a horoscope in that the content seems that vague get strangely relevant quality. Sometimes I think you can get alot of value by taking your developer talent out to lunch for a bit of a chinwag.
