Another Blog Recommendation

Some time back I recommended folks give Greg Rahn’s blog a visit. The blog is at and I’ve been reading it for some time. I haven’t known Greg for that long, but I have the utmost respect for the group he is in since it is lead by Andrew Holdsworth. That means I have respect for Greg as well! J

Greg and I have had some short chats, the latest of which took place at Mogens Norgaard’s impromptu San Franscisco office of MiracleAS (Chevy’s across the street from Moscone south) where Mogens (as co-founder of the Oaktable Network) showed his ever-so-typical hospitality to fellow Oaktable member and those stray cats we happened to bring along with us. In my case, that was Greg Rahn and my old friend Randy from EMC (Federal) and Matt Zito of GridApp. As always that was a nice chat since Anjo Kolk, Doug Burns and Jared Still (Oaktable members) were there at one point or another as well. Of course we talked about Oracle, but I recall we spent more than a few moments talking about Data Warehouse 2.0 technology Data Warehouse Appliances-a topic I shall blog about in great detail soon enough.

I’m adding Greg to my blogroll.
