  • When Wronged…

    My lovely bride and I visited Paris last year for SQL Saturday 323. We stuck around a few days to do touristy stuff and we learned a lot about the history of France. While reading about an uprising in the late 1800’s, Christy stumbled upon the story of l'affaire Dreyfus (the Dreyfus Affair). In 1894 Captain Alfred Dreyfus was convicted of treason ...

  • Some Thoughts on Leadership

    The purpose of leading is not to be out front. Being out front is simply where good leaders find themselves. “Front” is merely a location, it conveys no authority. And it is possible to find oneself out front and not be a leader. The goal of a leader should not be to serve oneself, it should be to serve others. “Which others, Andy?” I’m glad you ...

  • Some Thoughts on Event Speaker Selection

    I write this from the perspective of experience. I’ve helped organize dozens of events over the past ten years.

Tony said this:I worked for a firm as an IT manager when it was going through a ...

  • Why I Do Not Support The Current PASS ExeCo Slate

    I read the PASS Officer Election announcement from June 15th with a bit of trepidation.  There was something about the announcement which made me uncomfortable, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. As a bit of background, the PASS ''officers'' are also known as the Executive Committee (ExeCo), as described in the PASS Bylaws in ...

  • A Simple Request

    I would like for this “Read Article” link at the SSWUG.org website to take readers interested in my writing to my writing and not to a screen to sign up for a service. This isn’t the first time I’ve asked about this – I’ve requested my work not be linked on this website in the past. I believe publishing my work without my permission is not ...

  • Managing Technical Teams Series Landing Page

    Introduction  I'm taking Brent Ozar's (Blog | @BrentO | SQLPeople) suggestion regarding my ramble-rant about the software business. At the Spring 2011 DevConnections Conference in Orlando, I had an opportunity to sit down with Brent for a good long chat. One of the first things he said to me was ''You need to put up a landing ...

  • My Last "Catch-Up" Post for 2010 Content

    I did a lot of writing in 2010. Unfortunately, I didn't do a good job of keeping all of that writing equally distributed throughout all of the channels where I'm active. So here are a few more posts from my blog, put on-line during the months of November and December 2010, that I didn't get posted here on SQLBlog.com: 1. It's Time to ...
