  • Blog Post: Those kids won't eat anything!

    I did my BI Power Hour demo at PASS 2008 yesterday and it featured my twin boys Bowen and Logan. Logan (right) has an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) that limits his diet (no milk products, gluten, or soy) and Bowen has some sensory issues, but that doesn't explain their extreme pickiness with food. ...

    If you're interested in a broad overview of data mining functionality in SQL Server 2005, check out my PASS 2005 presentation on IT's Showtime with the compelling and exciting name "Data Mining with SQL Server 2005."

  • Blog Post: Slides from my 2 day training course in Copenhagen

    Last year on short notice I pulled together a two day data mining training session for about 30 people in Copenhagen. I've been getting requests for slides "from my book" (and from other places), and since I never had any, I felt these would do. You can get them from this link at sqlserverdatamining...

  • Blog Post: Me on "TV"

    I just watched the MSDN TV episode I did on Data Mining and I'm less embarassed than I thought I would be... [:D] If you've watched any of the data mining webcasts it's old hat, but if you haven't it's a good teaser to get you started - after which you should watch the Intro to DM Webcast

  • Blog Post: New data mining sample available

    Those of you who read my blog likely know that our site went down again (not because I said so, but because there's a high correlation between people who read my blog and visit sqlserverdatamining.com) This time the reason was a bit more benign - in moving the box to it's new location, the hard drive...
  • Blog Post: Busy busy month

    I've kind of gotten out of the blog habit since before TechEd in June. Before TechEd I was disconnected for a week on a "vacation" visiting family for a niece-in-law's graduation. Boy, I could have blogged a lot that week - but only if I could guarantee that nobody from the family would have ever read...

  • Blog Post: Webcasts, Murphy's Law and our Newsletter

    You know it always happens - you can run a demo everyday for two years and then when you're giving a webcast available to the world - something goes horribly wrong. OK, so it wasn't horribly wrong, but I did manage to flub it up - you can check out me tripping over myself here . I figured out that...

    Last week I traveled to copenhagen on a trip sponsored by our Denmark office.
