I have been getting a lot of interesting feedback regarding my last post about Zycus. In one discussion, I had expressed my surprise regarding how frank they were about the market, the competition, where they are weak, and where they are strong.

I must admit that I was a little surprised when I received an e-mail from Zycus indicating that they wanted to talk with me to provide an update on their company. It is not because I am not a good conversationalist. I think that I can be an interesting, delightful, and perhaps even entertaining contributor to any […]

When I received the letter from SciQuest last Friday threatening legal action for the allegedly libelous commentary of this blog regarding their company, I immediately shared it with you in my post SciQuest Fights Back: A Case of David and Goliath? In that post, I indicated that I stand by my research and what I have written. […]

I have received numerous comments regarding my last couple of posts, particularly as it relates to a free press and the prevalence of native advertising or content.
