ThoughtWorks published a recent version of their Technology Radar these days and Neil Ford did some explanation on it with the recommendation to "Build Your Own Technology Radar".
So here is My Technology Radar: http://frvabe.blogspot.com/2013/06/my-technology-radar.html

Just in case you have misinterpreted the "Hold" meaning in the radar ( I just did that and came to similar conclusion)
The "Hold" section indicates: use it because it is well established (regularly put it to the test)
The original intent of the hold ring was “hold off for now”, to represent technologies that were too new to reasonably assess yet. We had in mind technologies that were getting lots of buzz but weren’t proven. The hold ring has evolved into our way of saying “don’t start anything new with this technology”. There’s no harm in using it on existing projects, but you should think twice about using this technology for new development. Hold is the closest we have to an avoid category, which Rebecca won’t let us have. But we’ve come to see great wisdom in that decision: true to the metaphor, your radar should be about things you are looking towards, not recriminations about the past.
