Do Industry Analysts have a kind heart towards charity?
It seems as if I have failed in my bully pulpit attempt to get others to be more thoughtful when it comes to charitable acts. I was hoping for a more positive response from bloggers in hopes that we could raise more attention for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation that sorely needs our help. Today is a sad day...
Not to be discouraged, I figured I would remix my approach and try something a little different. What if I changed the charity to Mercy Corp which helps provide food and water to those innocent children who lost their homes in Lebanon from misguided Israeli attacks? What if I also agreed to ask industry analysts and only industry analysts would at least one heed the call or would it go unanswered?
If industry analyst from their blog could provide analysis of the results of the survey on Enterprise Architecture and Software Development, I will pay $250 to this charity. There are a couple of caveats though:
- We understand the notion of empirical research and disclaim any faults you may find in the methods. Instead of throwing daggers, the response should remain 100% positive, thoughtful and detailed while not attacking the methods used but be purely constrained to providing insight based on collected answers
- Respond from a work-related blog so that I know you are a real industry analysts. Sorry, for those who use typepad, blogspot, etc.
- Trackback to this particular blog entry
- Tag the particular blog entry as follows: http://www.technorati.com/tag/JamesMcGovern
- Make sure your own blog entry pings technorati as I will use this as a transparent counting mechanism
- Please respond by Monday, August 21st 2006 as it is important to get money to this worthy cause asap
I am willing to put my money where my mouth is. Please make me a poor man...
