"What is laughable is that anybody would listen or care what an analyst from Jupiter would have to say. Jupiter and its brethren were the ones that essentially predicted everything incorrectly as it pertained to the Internet. [...] A good strategy would be to find out what Jupiter is suggesting and do the opposite. It seemingly isn’t accountable for its projections and simply "adjusts" them. And yet…newspapers still call Jupiter for commentary. It’s like calling Enron to ask for commentary on business ethics."
Much as I think Salon is in trouble, Hurley has a mouthful here. Jupiter analyst quotes is most often a mark of journalistic laziness, just short of the paramount sin: Rob Enderle quotes.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
