First Forrester blog

By Charlene Li

Steve Rubel posted a very nice comment on his blog, observing that this is Forrester's first blog. Very observant! It seemed natural that since I cover the space, that I have a blog. What better way to research a topic than to actually practice it!

One of the goals of this blog is also to figure out what role blogs will have within Forrester. So if you have suggestions about what you'd like to see this blog cover -- and also, what you expect to see in a Forrester blog, by all means, please let me know.

Congrats on the new blog. I'm looking forward to seeing your (hopefully) unedited thoughts on search.

Charlene Li

These posts are definitely unedited -- although like any good management team, Forrester reviews them occassionally and gives me feedback on the quality and direction of the blog.

Although goodness knows, I can always use editing -- I keep finding posts with typos and grammatical mistakes!

Charlene, One thing I would really like to see from Forrester is an RSS or Atom feed that provides details on the new research reports that you folk are constantly publishing. Given that your site is already set up for searching and you have short summaries of each report already written, it would probably be trivial to modify your content management system to build up a feed that announced each of your new reports the moment it was released. This would allow services like ours at PubSub.com to include pointers to your research in the results that we deliver to our subscribers. I believe it should result in higher readership and more sales for you while making it easier for everyone to keep more up-to-date on the latest research.

We actually do have an RSS feed -- it's at http://www.forrester.com/rss although we're not yet actually publicizing it yet on our site. But it's in the works!!! It's by far the best way to scan our research -- and since I've started using it, it has helped me tremendously (I can now honestly say that I read all of our research -- or at least, the summary!).
