Connectid in Gartner Wedge

Connectid is proud to announce that, for the first year running, this blog has been recognized by Gartner as a leader in the 'silly & sarcastic' Gartner Wedge-Shaped Thingy.

"Well this obviously means alot to us" said an emotional Paul Madsen, CSO of Connectid. "We try hard to be both silly & sarcastic so, it's important to have that acknowledged. We know full well how competitive the 'Ottawa-based Identity Blogs Lacking Focus' market is so for Gartner to call us a leader in it is big, really big."

Added Madsen "Now is not the time to quibble but I question Gartner's rankings for 'salaciousness'. We put significant effort into being salacious, sometimes completely inappropriately, and so for us to rank so low seems strange. I guess we just need to be better here going forward."

I was particularly irked that Virtual Quill only made it into the "niche player" quadrant. But, as they said in the report, we don't appear to take the silliness and sarcasm seriously enough. We're going to have to work on that...

Admit it, Paul, you're just jealous of my gold lamé suit :-P
