Charlene Li (the woman who, if she were a technology, would be RSS) is leaving Forrester on July 18. In her blog post “Why I’m leaving Forrester”, she explains she’s leaving after nine years because she’s needing more control over how she spends her time - especially with her family. Good for her.
I only hope she’ll keep her promise that she’ll stay involved in this space. I’m not at all ready for her to go.
She’s leaving a whole team of people in their San Francisco office - and I expect Jeremiah Owyang (whom I met years ago at an early Web 2.0 conference and have enjoyed watching him grow) will carry the torch well for her.
