This dude needed a series, and now he has one

I heard comedian Gilbert Gottfried once deliver a bit that went like this. "I was standing in a field and an alien spaceship came down. The door opened and this strange creature came out and said to me. 'Ben Gazzara is a great actor, how come he doesn't have a series?" I felt just like this when I first met RedMonk analyst and international man of mystery, James Governor. James is sort of the Robert Downey, Jr. of the IT analytics field. I'm not sure what I mean by that but it felt right as I typed it. Bottom line is, he is unfailingly straight-forward, makes people with ties develop a twitch, and treads successfully (for me anyway) that elusive line between informing and entertaining on matters of IT.
So, in a warped version of the Gilbert Gottfried-supplied analogy, James is both Ben Gazzara and the alien and I'm the guy in the field, this time asking the question, "why don't YOU have a series?" Well, he does. And it's worth watching, along with Ben Gazzara in any episode from Run for Your Llife.
