Social media guru Jeremiah Owyang, whom I’ve known since his Hitachi Data Systems days, is now a senior analyst for Forrester Research. I bumped into him at the BlogWorld Expo party at the Hard Rock Club in Las Vegas. This is a short clip but you can hear the enthusiasm in his voice, along with the buzz at the party.

“This is amazing. The [blogging] industry is really starting to come together,” he said.

Here’s a longer video interview with Jeremiah (with lots more detail about what he’s up to now) at Forrester’s October 2007 Consumer Forum.

P.S. Jeremiah mentions 1,500 people in the video. There may have been that many registered for BlogWorld but I don’t think that many people showed up.
