We’re not in Kansas anymore

by Ian Glazer  |  May 13, 2010  |  3 Comments

Q: So tell us what you remember?

A: It was cold outside. I was reading an email.


Q: What did the email say?

A: Burton Group has been acquired by Gartner.


Q: What happened next?

A: I don’t really remember. So busy these days. I know there was a volcano…


And that pretty much catches you up with my life over the last few months.

For those of you who follow me over at Tuesdaynight, don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging over there. So for all things food, travel, and miscellaneous, you can still get your fix.

In the coming week I’ll be using my shiny new Gartner blog to tell you about:

* The Identity Management Market Profile that is about to publish

* What to expect at this year’s privacy track at Catalyst North America

* An exciting interop in the works for Catalyst


BTW, next week I am off to a few event vendor events – expect a tweetstorm.

  2. Guy Creese says:

    Kansas? Must be an allusion to a film or something. Since it’s Burton Group, I was expecting the title of the post to read, “We’re not in Utah any more…”

  3. Ian Glazer says:

    @Guy – Good point, but since in my BG career I was in Midvale all of 4 or so times, I didn’t think I could use that title. But then again, I’ve never been to Kansas… ah well.
