I recently had the pleasure to do an analyst briefing with Michael Cote’ of RedMonk. I really enjoyed it because until recently Michael was working at BMC so we had a number of shared contacts and he had a deep understanding of mgmt issues so I could have a really technically dense conversation with him. What was humorous was that there is always a PR person in attendance (to provide adult supervision) and she was looking at us like we had rat’s tails hanging out of our mouths ! It was lots of fun.
Michael blogged the discussion at: http://www.redmonk.com/cote/archives/2006/06/teched_2006_pow.html .
