GBN 2009 – Conference Abstracts Accepted

Categories: 2009 GBN - Dallas Dave Rathbun @ 10:42 am

I have been selected to present two topics at the 2009 GBN conference (which is back in Dallas again this year). For one of them I will revive the “variables” series and present a new set of fun things to do with Webi variables. :) For the second I will revisit and expand upon a single topic from one of my older Universe Designer presentations: working with recursive data. The entire talk will revolve around the challenges and various solutions that can be used to represent recursive data via a universe. It’s a bit specialized, but I hope folks will find it useful.

If you haven’t made plans for the conference yet, I hope you will consider it. If your manager won’t approve a convention as a budget expense this year, consider it a training opportunity instead. :)

Dave Twitter: Now With Multiple Channels

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 9:07 am

Some of you may already know this, but I have more than one blog. Five, to be exact. The reason I did that was because I have a wide variety of interests and one blog just wasn’t going to work. People that are interested in photography won’t want to read about phpBB, and people that are interested in phpBB aren’t going to be ready to wade through all of the Business Objects posts, and so on. Thus the extra blogs.

I have decided I need to do the same thing with twitter. I started with only one twitter account, but I am now going to split off the BI tweets into a new channel. The new channel can be found under http://twitter.com/dagira_tweets.

As a footnote to this post, here is the standard icon used for twitter members that don’t upload a picture:

And here is a picture of the hotel carpet at a reception I went to a few weeks ago at SAPPHIRE:

I think I was the only one who noticed. :lol:
