Industry leaders talk about SNS:
"I enjoy reading SNS."
"In case you didn't see this, I thought you should."
"Your newsletter is good, which is why I ordered it."
"I read every issue with great anticipation and continue to marvel at your pattern recognition skills."
"I look forward to your continuous and inspiring Newsletter which I find is the singlemost valuable and visionary contribution to our community!"
"I have subscribed to this electronic newsletter for some time now. Mark Anderson has an uncanny knack for being right about his predictions. He addresses computer and telecom trends and issues exclusively. I thought this might make an interesting resource for our group, as SNS offers site licenses."
"Here is a copy of that newsletter I mentioned. Best money spent in cyberspace. Period. (And Mark Anderson -- you can quote me on that!)"
"Mark Anderson sticks his neck out, and his track record is awesome. Anderson's newsletter [is] Best of Breed in my opinion."
"Sign me up --- You mean that now Bill Gates can say he gets the same info as me? Wow."
"Thanks for the trial subscription ... I'd like to become a regular subscriber, so sign me up."
"OK -- sign me up for a subscription. . . . This is good stuff. . . . And a great marketing approach. . . . This newsletter's analysis is highly relevant to the bandwidth provider issues we were just discussing ("Who Will Win the Broadband War?"). I find Mark Anderson's SNS newsletter the best weekly analysis I see -- and I see a lot of them."
"I look forward to your ongoing relevant and exceptionally accurate reporting and analysis of events, as well as your superb prediction of coming significant events and trends."
"This guy is perhaps the most astute on the planet in terms of technology prognostication. I recommend a subscription (he does site licenses too). Several items below on internet access and one on the implications to the set top box."
"This is the only publication I can think of that I read religiously."
"I have been a subscriber now for over nine years and I love every issue. I love the style, the tone and the content. I don't know how you do it week in and week out -- but you do -- and I am glad. Thank you. I appreciate your help and the insights your newsletter continues to provide me and my team."
"Mr. Anderson has successfully established and differentiated himself as a fairly brilliant person, possessing the unique gift of being able to mash wildly orthogonal trends together in order to gain almost heretically accurate insight into where all things technological may be heading. In the five years I've been following him, I've found his views on the world to be the most compelling read on the planet, and nowadays can't imagine developing technology and strategy without the benefit of such insight. -- Mr. Anderson has on occasion brought together deep thinkers on big problems, and has even kicked off a few projects that have the potential to substantially alter some aspect of the technology landscape. Project Inkwell is one of those projects."
"This is the best newsletter I get."
"Here's the best newsletter out there."
"You put together a very high quality product."
"You'll enjoy this newsletter . . . it is "the best of insights."
