Somehow had completely missed this one, The Architectural Journal is published quarterly in PDF format. Issue 22 seems to be the latest, and here is what it shows in the table of contents: Foreword Data-Warehouse Principles for Supporting Enterprise-Enabled BI Applications BI-to-LOB Integration: Closing the Cycle Increasing Productivity by Empowering Business Users with Self-Serve BI […]Read more "The Architectural Journal"
Recently I caught a few minutes of a CSPAN interview with Chief Justice John Roberts, part of a larger presentation on the Supreme Court (sorry, I could not find a link to it) that talked about how they handle deciding cases. At some point after oral arguments they convene in a meeting room where only […]Read more "Collaboration Patterns – Part 2"
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to be more effective at collaborating, usually in the context of a meeting. The line blurs for me there, because partly I think it’s just a meeting issue – but let me share and then see what you think. Let me start with an example.

Multi touch was similar to what you would do on an iPhone, lots of options to customize. The stylus was interesting, did pretty well even with my pretty horrible hand writing, […]Read more "Comments on the Bamboo Touch"
Not sure if it went to the entire PASS mailing list or just those that have attended a Summit, but you should have received today an email with the subject “Location of PASS Summit: Your Feedback Needed By January 19” that has a link to a survey about your preferences for the location of the […]Read more "PASS Summit Survey – Check Your Email"
Last week I posted about Picking a Blog Platform on some of the process that lead to me moving to WordPress. This time I thought I’d share some notes on the install and customization process so far. This is on a Windows 2003 server running IIS 6. I’m assuming here that if you decide to […]Read more "Installing WordPress"
One of my big projects this year is to build a speaker bureau, so in this post I’m going to write about some of the ideas I’m hoping to include – and then get some input from you! The Goal: Build a centralized list of speakers that can used by Chapter leaders, community event leaders, and […]Read more "PASS Update #22 (Speaker Bureau – Call for Comments)"
