Last year I predicted three things for 2010, lets take a quick look back at how accurate I was:

  • Canada to get an anti-spam law – Check!: We got it, look out 2011 C-28 is here.
  • Continued use of “less then desirable practices” – Check!: Batch and Blast, List purchase, failure to follow CAN-SPAM (Really! It’s been 7 yrs already!), Image or HTML only emails are still common and are not going away based on the messages in my inbox
  • Consolidation in the ESP/email space – Check!: WhatCounts, Pivotal Veracity, Unica, Aprimo…

Not bad three for three.
