  • Proper Use of Social Media

    This has come up a couple times (as in twice) over the past couple years, so I thought I’d put the question to my loyal readers (both of you, Hi Mom!) and see what you think.

  • Bootstrapping SQL Server bloggers and blog readers with Twitter!

    On 17th December 2009 Aaron Nelson (you may know him as @sqlvariant) had a great idea – he invented the #SQLHelp hashtag; with a little kickstart from Brent Ozar the idea grew and #SQLHelp became a successful QnA channel in the SQL Server community and is today going from strength to strength. I’m a great advocate of SQLHelp and not just because ...

  • Whatever happened to Twitter Annotations?

    In April 2010 Twitter announced a new feature that they would soon be introducing - Twitter Annotations. Put simply Twitter Annotations can be described as the ability to attach metadata to a tweet; think hashtags on steroids. Lots of people were quite excited about it:I love to sit on the beach.  One of the coolest things about the beach ...

  • Interesting things – Twitter annotations and your phone as a web server

    I overheard/read a couple of things today that really made me, data junkie that I am, take a step back and think, “Hmmm, yeah, that could be really interesting” and I wanted to make a note of them here so that (a) I could bring them to the attention of anyone that happens to read this and (b) I can maybe come back here in a few years and see if ...

Consider this recent tweet of mine: The URL that enables you to see that tweet is ...

  • Tweetpoll and RESTful Northwind go bye-bye

    On 31st January 2010 Windows Azure and SQL Azure will transition to becoming services that you have to pay for which means that my three small demos that are hosted up there are going to disappear hence I thought now would be a good time to review before they are digitally ground into dust. Tweetpoll Tweetpoll was a demo that I wrote back in ...

  • Twitter Search Term Extraction

    During my presentation A whistlestop tour of SSIS addins yesterday at SQLBits I demonstrated how Jessica Moss & Andy Leonard’s Twitter Task could be used in conjunction with SSIS’s Term Extraction component to discover what people might be saying in their replies to a Twitter user. The Term Extraction component is a little-known and ...
