Thanks for Everything
A great last post, Roz. As always, you're going out with insight and generosity. You're leaving the telecom industry richer than when you found it, even if we are now going to be that much poorer for your exit. I wish you so much joy and wonder writing for yourself instead of for the rest of us. Just remember up near the Northern border that Winter is Coming, whisky is warming, and we'll always miss you. Thanks for everything you did for the open source communities, and write some great narcissitic villains. :)

Couldn't agree more with all your points.  I've indpendently reached similar conclusions about most of them, with slightly different arguments. Happy to be in such good company.

Best wishes in your future endeavors!

Why analysts ≠ journalists, and why we will miss you
Well, Roz, once again you are right about just about everything. Regarding your point number 5, I think the reason analysts ≠ journalists is that journalists are supposed to report the facts and refrain from expressing opinion, whereas analysts are expressly expected to express their opinion. Hearing what you think, not just what you heard, is what made me want to listen to you. And losing that is why we will miss you.

I am glad to hear that you view your future career in creative writing as different from what you have been doing. I would hate to think that all this time what you were writing was just made up stuff. (By the way, I am in total disagreement with the future father-in-law of the character Jack in Sideways; see the early scene with the tasting of the wedding cake options.)

All the best,

Dan

Swansong
Great article Roz. I agree with point 1 to a fair degree. I think if I agreed fully I'd be talking myself out of a job. I'm with you on point 8 and am thankful I don't have to produce that kind of stuff. Re #10 - you are a highly valued member of Heavy Reading and the entire industry and you will be much missed. Best of luck in your new career!
