Ah, great minds. Same, with a little more connective tissue and a gratuitous group hug.

I really wish they had APIs for the mashup crowd. Not just integration with existing restaurant management systems but a real platform. Couldn't you see something like a Tungle+OpenTable mashup? OT+EventBrite? OT+Plancast? Their mobile app should be able to import a calendar event from Outlook or Google Calendar to see the time, place, and who is coming. I saw a brilliant airplane reservation system UI today at, so there is definitely room for improvement in OpenTable's user experience. If OT isn't surprising its users (on both sides of the reservation) with delightful improvements every quarter, an upstart should steal or redefine their business. Hard to sustain, but that's the game.

What are your in-house blog policies? Do you reserve the right to delete a blog post? To edit a blog post? To delete an entire blog? To remove or change links within a blog post? To shut out an employee from his blog? To move the blog content to another site? To change the blog's attribution? To moderate over the objections of a post's author? You'd only have these abilities on blogs you operate.
Forrester’s policy castrates it’s talent. As you said, they consider it their IP. Your employer has the power to edit, modify, re-attribute, delete, distort and do anything they want with your words/pictures/videos on their site. They can choose to ruin your reputation or bury your online presence as if you were never at the firm. If your employer closes shop or is dissolved following a merger, your work can vanish along with the reputation you’d earned. This not about Forrester concentrating its brand. It’s about your power over your fate. It’s you controlling how you are perceived in the marketplace of ideas, over the longevity of your online presence, of your ability to promptly respond to comments, to speak in your own voice, the authority to revise and correct posts. Our worldwide knowledge work labor market requires a well run, living, professional online presence of its workers. Like a gap in your CV, Forrester’s policy shuts down your professional onlife for your tenure.
Check your citation about David Pogue. He has his own line of books and a web site that are not part of the Times network. Pogue's a counterargument.
On2 is also known for delivering High Quality (640x480@30fps) Skype video. This may have little to do with YouTube and lots to do with Google's Talk/Voice/Wave live conversation services. That, and bringing codec level talent in-house.
