Quoted - CNNMoney

I've seriously fallen behind in my efforts to post links to all the places I've been quoted. I've just had too much work on the go in recent weeks and months.

But here's one that jumps out of the ordinary: I've been quoted for a piece on CNNMoney.com (pause while I do a bit of a happy dance. This is a significant hit.)

It's entitled The next big thing in batteries, and it was written by Grace Wong out of New York. Here's what I said:
"The chances of alternative batteries gaining a foothold is much higher than a year ago before the issue with lithium ion batteries became mainstream," said Carmi Levy, an analyst with Info-Tech Research Group.
And it was the lead quote, too. Cool! (They also built a sidebar out of my research note. Look to the right.)

Some days, I feel like I'm leading a bit of an unreal life.

But wait, there's more: Hell did indeed freeze over last night as Microsoft announced a partnership with Novell to develop and promote products and services for (say it with me) SUSE Linux. We sent out a press release (it's on Yahoo!Finance here) and I've pretty much spent my day speaking with reporters. Lots of fresh links coming, but if you're really keen, Google search me here, or Google News search me here.

And still more: Here's a quick rundown of some of the key pickups following the Microsoft/Novell announcement:

It's amazing how much more quotable you've become in the year I've been reading your blog, Carmi. Since I don't think your thinking and writing has changed that much I have to conclude that those people were being foolish before for not quoting you then. Fortunately they've seen the light and now you're one of the oft-quoted technology opinion leaders. Great work but don't forget to take pictures too!

Michele sent me, Carmi.

Very impressive, and well-deserved. You have every reason to be proud.

Hi from Michele's today!

carli said...

COOL. Congrats on all the press shout-outs. I was quoted in the WSJ once. . . for buying my boss macaroni and cheese for chanukah. . . not the same thing, I suppose.

Snaggle Tooth said...

Come-on David- Can't Carmi get just *one* day off to do interviews?

Impressive ...

Here from Michele this time.

Technology changes so fast... usually when I have purchased a computer or camera in the past, it is only to find out that the new and improved model came out a week later.

It must be nice to be privy to all the breaking changes and to understand them!

craziequeen said...

Very impressive, Carmi honey :- [looks impressed] - see?
