Returning to

I have stepped down from my role at Digital Clarity Group as of Monday this week, two weeks into a 90 day transition.

Perhaps after so many years as a freelancer, I am simply unsuited to getting into alignment with a strategic focus even a little bit different than my own. At Gigaom Research, where I worked for four and a half years as a freelance Research Lead, I was setting my own research agenda, with almost complete independence.

At any rate, if a fit isn’t there I think it’s best to end the experiment as soon as possible, to minimize any confusion for clients or to diminish any investment of time or energy into activities that might not come to fruition.

I will be continuing my research, writing, and consulting activities at, which had never really stopped.
