Quite right Sara! Those “weblogs” will indeed become consumer tools! And then we can all get back to the important stuff that big businesses like the Radicati Group like to talk about.

What a joke. Sara Radicati, showing the world yet again that a PhD doesn’t equate to intelligence or common sense.

Via vowe.

    wow. And if I am correct, Blogs are what dat exposed Radicati's flawed report of last year. So this year they are planning to malign blogging itself. :) And am I suppose to have news (and predictions) from "Credible" source of Radicati ..LOL.
