Apparently getting to Chicago for the Forum has been quite difficult. I heard that last night a plane from Seattle had a "firm" landing at ORD and went off the runway.
For another person coming from Boston, the flight ran out of seat belt extenders. Apparently airlines only carry four on board. So where did they go to get more? A flight to Orlando - that typically carries 12.
We are officially one month away from Forrester's Consumer Forum
- it's going to be held in Chicago from October 10 - 12. Here are some
of the things that I'm involved with during the event and others that
I'm looking forward to.

Have you ever noticed the option to rate documents? Next time you're on forrester.com, look for the "ratings and comments" box on the right hand side, next to the document body. If you typically get PDF copies of documents, you can ask your seat holder to rate docs for you.
Why does this matter? Ratings are one of the best ways to get feedback on our research quality. We take the numbers pretty seriously - down the line, they figure into performance evaluations and compensation. I pay attention to the numbers and the comments that go with them critical. It's *extremely* helpful to know how to improve. Sometimes not all improvements can be made, e.g. more specific performance results when a client doesn't want to release all of their data.
So next time you're on the site and reading our latest research - let us know what you think!
