SAS Press makes a stop in The Golden State

In just a few short days, I’ll fly cross-country to attend the Western Users of SAS Software conference (WUSS). I make no secret of the fact that I love California: San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, among others, are all great cities to visit. This year WUSS will be held […]

What’s behind our orange covers

It’s bold, autumnal, and adorns team uniforms, frozen desserts, and hair. Wherever orange is used, it makes a statement.  With changing leaves and Halloween approaching, it’s appropriate to call attention to fall colors and covers.

Live from M2009 - Day 2

I’m tired. But in a good way. We had a great day in the SAS Publishing booth. We had a lot—and I do mean a lot—of traffic in the booth, much of it thanks to the early-bird book giveaway special. And I got to talk to a lot of cool […]

Live from M2009 - Day 1

I had every intention of blogging daily from M2009 and PBLS, but I never found a free moment yesterday to write down anything. I don’t like to think about it because it makes me exhausted, but I think I stayed awake for 24 hours yesterday. After a delay in Dallas, […]
