Our over-populated social mediaverse

Hmmm. Let’s see. Facebook. Check. Twitter. Check. LinkedIn. Check. That’s about it for me, social media Website-wise. Guess I got that covered. What? You say there’s more? Lots more? Boy, is there ever. Wikipedia lists 157 active social networking sites. My favorite in that bunch, which I’ve not been quite

I'm pleased and humbled to admit I've already learned a few things by reading it. This site and others like Angela's SAS BI blog, the "SAS Tips" site, and the cacophony of

My fifteen minutes

Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend David Pogue’s dynamic presentation at SAS on Web 2.0. In addition to being a popular New York Times columnist, author, and CBS news correspondent, to my delight, Mr. Pogue is also a former Broadway conductor. Experiencing Mr. Pogue’s one-man show, combining technology,

Learn from the past, look to the future

“We must all hang together, or assuredly, we shall all hang separately” —Benjamin Franklin Burlington, Vermont, 14 September—Here I sit in my room in the Burlington Hilton, damp from getting lost in a rainstorm walking around a small college town. I reflect: Why am I watching Monday Night Football instead

They love us in Japan

At least, they will love us when they see that we've translated the SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 tutorial into Japanese and put it on the SAS support site. We've also got three flavors of Chinese (zh-TW, zh-CN, zh-HK) and Korean now available. These new editions join the Italian, German, Spanish,

The Geek’s Guide to Seattle

I can’t take credit for selecting Seattle as the site of SAS Global Forum 2010. But I can thank the SAS Global Forum Executive Board for making that decision a number of years ago. We had a terrific conference the last time (SUGI 28 in 2003), and that must be

Camera-ready at WUSS '09!

I checked our SAS Publishing Twitter account the other day, and was surprised to see that SAS Press contracted author Sy Troung had posted videos of attendees and SAS representatives from the Western Users of SAS Software (WUSS) conference held in San Jose on September 1-3, 2009. What a cool

A hit, a very palpable hit

In Shakespeare’s tragedy of Hamlet, the sycophantic Osric, who witnessed Hamlet’s “very palpable hit” during a fencing duel, forces Claudius to adopt another strategy to achieve his goal, Hamlet’s murder. I see this analogy playing out more and more frequently among the International oil companies (IOCs) and National oil companies

Nutty uses for SAS

Almost daily, I hear reports of scientific studies in which the researchers have used SAS for the data analysis. Typically I don't dig into the details because, frankly, the studies are usually way over my head. But this one about the effect of nut storage, nut size, and nut soaking

Lookin' professional

Thanks to the folks who support our web presence, this blog page has just received a facelift (but alas, the blogger has not). New colors, easier navigation with the breadcrumbs up top, and a new banner image that shows the SAS for Dummies cover (as if to say, "really, he's

Read how Stacey and Christine are working to join the ranks of the certified (and not the certifiable, we hope). I'm sure that PROC CERTIFY (as they've dubbed it) is an example of one proc that won't end with a QUIT; but with a RUN;
