He may no longer be a daily blogger, as he does have to think seriously on how to keep food on the table and a roof over his family's heads, but from a perspective of insight, understanding and reality, there are few in the telco blogging fraternity (aka "The Cabal") who are as switched on as James Enck.
With the movement of long time blogger Martin Geddes to head of strategy at BT Design, Enck remains my favorite source of candor about what's going on in Europe, and especially the UK with regard to telecom, just as Dean Bubley remains highest on my UK analyst list for wit and cynicism.
As someone who is spending more and more time in the UK than I ever imagined, working with clients on campaigns and strategy more and more, I'm finding both of them to be critical to my understanding of where things are headed, just as I rely on their North American counterparts.
The key though is understanding that James Enck is a financial analyst, and his approach really zeros in on the most important aspect of any investor's views.
How will the darn thing make money. So, while James may not be the most prolific, his track record and score card warrants his streak blogging approach. I for one would rather see less noise and more insight, and thank fully, James (and others) help fill that need.
