    Many a true word said in Jest, Brian.

    I am a newbie but recognised myself in some of your categories. And others in others. No doubt some will be offended that you shone a light in our eyes.

    I am interested in to what extent vendors consider this and treat analysts individually, rather than just broadcasting content and seeing what sticks. I am guessing this varies wildly from need for to vendor. I am also guessing that they won’t reply to this…

    By the way: I am not an analyst. That is a missing category indeed!

    Missing category, in top left box (adds value, lets vendors coast): Sniper.

    That’s the condition I aspire to, although I suspect I’m just a Professor on the good days and a Snark on the bad.
