Gartner today announced a new, limited pilot for flagging significant mergers, acquisitions, major corporate changes that are considered impactful for a Magic Quadrant. I just blasted out the most obnoxious email to colleagues who are preparing speeches for Informatica World, forcefully reminding them that any references to analyst research requires permission. I got a lot of eye rolling in response, but luckily no serious push back. Ludovic Leforestier: Good post but nothing new there: analysts have lon The Outsell webinar: what did you think?

I listened to a lot of Dead while researching my crime novel The Haight , and this is one song I can enjoy in a loop all day long. Click on the image and judge for yourself. At some point, someone brought the song across the Atlantic and over the generations it evolved into Americana. The song in various forms was a standard in the early sixties by such Greenwich Village standard-bearers as Bob Dylan who sang it on his debut album , Joan Baez, Simon and Garfunkel and Makem and Clancy. But the Dead — especially Jerry Garcia — made this song their own. As they left Fennario, a captain called William falls in love with a young woman called Peggy, and asks for her hand in marriage.
The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie Roud is a Scottish folk song about a thwarted romance between a soldier and a girl. Like many folk songs, the authorship is unattributed, there is no strict version of the lyrics, and it is often referred to by its opening line "There once was a troop o' Irish dragoons". The song is also known by a variety of other names, the most common of them being "Peggy-O" , "Fennario" , and "The Maid of Fife". The song is about the unrequited love of a captain of Irish dragoons for a beautiful Scottish girl in Fyvie. The narration is in the third person, through the voice of one of the captain's soldiers. The captain promises the girl material comfort and happiness, but the girl refuses the captain's advances saying she would not marry a foreigner or a soldier. The captain subsequently leaves Fyvie. In two different variations of the song, he threatens to burn the town s if his offer is rejected, or alternately save the town if his offer is accepted. He later dies of a broken heart, or battle wounds, or possibly both.
