How Wrong Can You Be?

The Sunday edition of the New York Times featured an interview with George F. Colony, chief executive of Forrester Research, written by Laura Rich.

The interview is titled "As I.T. Goes, So Goes Forrester?"

Those of you with a New York Times online subscription can read the article here .

One of the questions that Laura asked was as follows:

Q. Let's talk about Google. You came out against it to some degree last year, citing competition from Microsoft, Yahoo and AOL. But Google has done well. Were you wrong?

A. This is how I saw it: that Google has three major challenges in front of it.

It was a rather soft interview. Because, he was not only wrong! He was wrong, wrong, wrong!

Interesting that he quotes those above "challenges" as the reason that Google will fail. In February 2003, I wrote an article which cited his so-called problems as the reasons why Google had succeeded, was succeeding and would continue to succeed!

If any of Forrester's customers actually paid for that analysis, and are reading this, I would like you to know I am also available to do analysis ...
