A bit of background: Those aren't grand daughters of the Clampetts
in the picture at right. Those are my three daughters and three
stepdaughters, all of whom I want to inherit the world - as little or as
much as they want to take hold of. (I already talked a bit about this
in a post on my personal, family blog.

Transparency - A Great Leadership Quality
I've always appreciated how Andy Warren (blog| twitter) operates in the most transparent manner, especially as it relates to his role as a director for the Professional Association for SQL Server. For example, Andy's latest blog post about prepping for the SQLRally, to kick off in less than 30 days, is ...
I’d like your opinion here.
Follow my logic here for a moment as I walk through a couple

My Favorite Magazine

One of the things that I enjoy about working for Quest Software is that we give back copiously to the community. From activities and offerings like SQLServerPedia, to our free posters mailed anywhere in North America (and don't forget the free hi-res PDFs for the rest of the world),
Don't forget that free DVDs of our virtual conferences ...
Cloud, Bunny, or CloudBunny?
Last year, some of my friends from Quest Software attended Hadoop World in New York. In 2009, I never would've guessed that Quest would be there with products, community initiatives, as a major sponsor and with presenters?
There were just under 1,000 attendees who weren’t the typical devheads and geekasaurs ...
Brent Ozar (blog | twitter) and I did an interview with TechTarget’s Brendan Cournoyer at last summer's Tech-Ed, which as turned into a podcast titled “Cloud efforts advance, SQL Server evolves.” The podcast covers all the major trends at the conference (like BI), virtualization features in Quest’s products (like Spotlight), Brent’s new book ...
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 ...
The topic that never seems to lie low for long - the selection and election process for PASS governing directors. (I also wrote extensively on the qualities of a good director-level candidate in this blog post). I decided to create a spoke on my blog specifically for discussions around PASS governance and related issues called ...
