Data geek. What it usually means is "analytics geek." Or, to get right down & dirty, "stat & math algorithm & regression & prediction geek"
Enterprise data warehouse. Many assume that means enterprise-wide. I define it to mean enterprise-grade. And enterprise-scalable.

@rpsherman I always laughed when I heard that US military involvement everywhere was "strategic." When global hegemony is strategy, it is.
@rpsherman Clearly, the shift in services has been from body shops to brain shops. Outsourcing infra & best practices to CoE powerhouses.
Just saw the word "psychopolitics." Isn't that redundant?
@rpsherman Thanks. Definitely enjoy your stuff too. Back 2 debate: If strategy is world domination, every little move may be a tactic.
@rpsherman For solution vendors, "strategic" indicated by where they R putting their big marketing bucks. Right now, HW/SW appliances R it!

The #MicroStrategy speaker, Hugh somebody, strongly resembles Morrissey of Smiths fame. But with a non-mopey visage and a non-whingy voice.
I love aesthetic design of Netezza appliances. The semi-circle patterns, the color hues & saturation, subtle textures--datacenter standouts!

Regaled my client with all the synonyms for "Next Best Action." Listened as they were either translated to Japanese or airquoted in English.
Client visited from overseas for a couple of prime face-to-face consulting hours on #CRM Next Best Action. Fairly intense few hours.

@VanessaAlvarez1 Yep. But the 2060s may out-suggest the 1960s into history's dustbin. They may have invented Robo-NancySinatra by then.
Rainy one. Nice & rainy. I use "nice" in the same context as "rainy" when I have no pressing need to be outdoors & there's no weather drama
Saw "Midnight in Paris." Good script, great performances, very immersive experience of the French capital across different eras.

Univision. This will inexorably become one of the largest TV channels in western hemisphere. And influencer in US elections. Habamos espanol
Weinergate. Just shows to go you how pathetically lame a virtual political sex scandal can be. Clinton-Lewinsky: now that was non-virtual!
None of those GOP candidates has fire in belly. They have microwaves set to 50% power & are all simply reheating refried beans.
In other news apparently less important than Weinergate this past week, radiation still leaking into Japan environment. No sex angle on this

Julian Assange. Name fast fading into Trivial Pursuit territory. What'd he do? Invent Wikipedia? No that's not it. I'd like 2 use a lifeline
Listening to The Who "5:15" from "Quadrophenia." Roger Daltrey has the most perfect rocknroll powervoice. Never bows or cows to Moon or Pete
Listening to Alison Statton & Spike "Tidal Blues" from '94 LP of that name. She is an awesomely soulful singer-songwriter in her own right.
Listening to Weavers "Follow the Drinking Gourd." Clearly, a coded Commie message song. The "Old Man" must be Pete's dear Uncle Joe Stalin.
Listening to Crowded House "Weather With You" from their best. Perfect example of great-sounding nonsense lyrics floating on awesome melody
Listening to Clannad "Northern Skyline" from their best. Maire, unlike little sis Enya, doesnt process her vocals. A most bewitching colleen
Listening to The Pogues "If I Should Fall From Grace With God." We all did, Shane, laddie. Its called original sin. I passed CCD, dude. You?
Listening to Van Morrison "He Ain't Give You None" from "TB Sheets." Give you his Jelly Roll...Morton? Old John flogs his daily what?

I bought Shaggs LP#2, "Shaggs Own Thing," when it came out on vinyl in early 80s. Very nice LP. Not junk. Nobody bought it.
Believe or not, Shaggs (the Wiggins sisters) did learn their instruments. This nice one, "Wheels," from LP#2 (http://youtu.be/j9ID43MWHsA)
I've just given away my fave sitcom of the 2000s. In an era of sitcom decline, "Scrubs" was my fond weekly addiction. Dr Cox was my fave!
NBC programmed "My World & Welcome To It" right before Rowan & Martin's "Laugh In." Both were highly innovative for their day. "Scrubs"-ish
My deepest memory of "My World and Welcome To It" was some hayseed philosopher who outshined William Windom's character in his family's eyes
One-season TV gem from 1969-70: "My World And Welcome To It" (http://youtu.be/lv-0P7ZZHsQ). Funnier than Thurber's original stories.

If you're so influential, why aren't you rich? Or, if you were rich before you got influential, what's the incremental benefit of influence?
Now that we all have several years data on popular social usage, has anybody determined whether correlation btwn influence & incomes?
Curious whether people "unfollow" more frequently as get deeper into social, or less frequently. Do we follow & stay indiscriminately?
Anybody whose tweetstream resembles a mundane "wanna do lunch?" IM/chat session with close friends is "don't follow" from my POV.
We got some seriously intense, but non-flooding, rain yesterday evening in Northern Virginia. God watered the plants in pots on our deck.
