Rich has been told to stop blogging about techonology. This is a shame, as he had worthwhile things to say.

Having very little information on what happened, I have to assume it's a blanket policy intended to protect Gartner's intellectual property, by reducing competition from non-Gartner IP (such as public blogs). I wonder how bad the backlash will be. This is aside from the fact that Rich was a) careful not to post Gartner content and b) not shy about mentioning what you could get if you were a Gartner client.

It's a pity.
