This Day In History

Happy Birthday Dave

A birthday cakeSo it’s mine and my brother’s birthday today and although he’s not a SQL Server professional, he’s still got an online presence.┬áDave’s hobby (and career I guess) have to do with images and computers and pictures made amazing and nifty by computers.

He posts all of his stuff (or almost all of it) on flickr. And if you like nerdy/nifty things check out his list of favorites.

If you look at his stuff, and you have a flickr account, I strongly recommend commenting on a picture of his. I think a thoughtful comment on a picture that you like would be the best present.

And speaking of “present” (see what I just did there?) If you want to see him present, here he is giving a 5 minute lightning talk on the visual sphere. It’s very much like my own presentations, although his talks are generally more interesting than mine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KppatojPM_0

My Favorite Blog Posts

Me, I’m following his lead and I created a new page that lists my favorites and your favorites. I want to make it easy for new readers or lurkers to get a sense of what my blog is about by putting my best foot forward.

Why Michael J Swart won’t be at the PASS Summit this year.

Hiker looking for people at a mountain pass and mountain summit.

I get confused sometimes

But seriously, I went to my first PASS Summit a year ago and I had a blast. As much as I’d like to be in Seattle this week, it’s just not in the cards for me. But I look forward to following all the news via blogs and twitter and I’ll even catch some of the keynotes courtesy of PASS.
