Adrian and I worked closely together at GoingOn for almost two years. My pain was his pain at times :)
Anyway, he is a wellspring of creativity and excellent thinking in the web2.0 space and online human interaction. He blogged about this announcement and his research focus here.
I also know that he's open to speaking with various social networks if you're interested in participating in his possible research project on social analytics. If so, just ping him!
