Each Friday on this blog I enjoy highlighting some of the cool things my friends do in their work and personal lives.
The Conference Catalyst" program) at an IT conference in China, one of the other speakers was also from Austin, Texas. I had never met Patrick Moorhead before landing in Hong Kong, but we continued on our trip to Macau, China together and became fast friends.
Pat is is one of the most cited technology analysts in the world. Moor Insights and Strategy is recognized by clients and cited in the press as experts in the high tech hardware, software, services, technology, and usage models for smartphones, tablets, PCs, living room devices, social media, and games.
He has been recognized in publications like the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Barron’s, Marketwatch, VentureBeat, PCMag, ZDNet, Computerworld, PC World, and many more. Plus he is a regular contributor to Forbes and Forbes.com.
Pat is a great speaker, too. His industry insights and natural communication style made him a popular presenter at the event of 200+ CIO's. I can see why clients bring him all over the world to speak at their technology events!
Although I have only known Pat a few days, he was a natural fit for my "Cool Things My Friend's Do" post this week, as he has created a cool career. He took an extensive tech marketing background and a love of all things gadget, and coupled them into an advisory that helps enterprise companies tackle problems at the ecosystem intersections inside and between the phone, tablet, computer and consumer appliance markets. Ecosystems include the hardware, software, content, and services required to deliver a customer solution.

I look forward to seeing Pat around Austin in the future.
Have A Great Day.
