OTN Needs a New Manager of Systems Communities

After 5 years of managing BigAdmin (under the watchful eye of Robert Weeks) and almost as much time managing the Systems Communities of OTN, I'm getting back with my ex. No, not her. I'm not that crazy. I'm returning to writing. A coupla novels, a little technical writing, maybe a blog or two.

I asked for a parade in honor of my departure, but my boss's response was unequivocal:

"Um. No."

Help Us Find OTN’s New Systems Community Manager!

After 5 years of managing BigAdmin (under the watchful eye of Robert Weeks) and almost as much time managing the Systems Communities of OTN, I'm getting back with my ex. No, not her. I'm not that crazy. I'm returning to writing. A coupla novels, a little technical writing, maybe a blog or two.

I asked for a parade in honor of my departure, but my boss's response was unequivocal:

"Um. No."
Parade or no parade, this means you get a chance to select the new head honcho (or honchess) of OTN's Systems Communities. There are several of them, and they will eventually encompass these topics and technologies:

  • Application Development in C, C++, and Fortran
  • Systems Management Tools
  • Oracle Solaris
  • Linux
  • Virtualization
  • OpenStack
  • Systems Configuration Support
  • Engineered Systems
  • Optimized Solutions
  • Servers
  • Storage
  • Networking

If you know someone who is comfortable with these technologies, loves to hang out with system admins and developers, and is comfortable writing about, interviewing technical experts about, and generally horsing around with these technologies and the technical trends surrounding them, point them to:

Most Excellent Job Posting for Manager of Systems Communities

Our system admins and developers in the community, and our Oracle technical experts, are a fun and fascinating bunch of people. The best part of the job is rubbing elbows with them. Give the job a try. Or tell a friend about it. If you do nothing, you might end up with someone who doesn't know how to use grep.

Big Data and the Future of Privacy – paper review (Part 3 of 3)

This is part 3 of a review of a paper titled Big Data and the Future of Privacy from the Washington University in St. Louis School of Law where the authors assert the importance of privacy in a data-driven future and suggest some of the legal and ethical principles that need to be built into that future.

Authors Richards and King suggest a three-pronged approach to protecting privacy as information rules:

Alignement marketing et ventes, pourquoi le CRM doit évoluer ?

Personne ne pourra le nier, les services Marketing et Ventes ont généralement beaucoup de mal à travailler entre eux. La naissance d’une conflictualité entre deux équipes nuit gravement à la productivité des différents services et à la performance des campagnes à la fois marketing et commerciales. Malheureusement il est presque utopique d’espérer voir ces deux secteurs évoluer en totale harmonie. Ils oeuvrent pourtant tous deux dans le même objectif : créer de la valeur pour (more...)

Optimizing the PL/SQL Challenge IV: More OR Condition Woes

In the previous post in the PL/SQL Challenge optimization series, we'd made huge performance gains simply by removing optional bind parameter clauses. The main body of the query is still doing a significant amount of work however and taking several seconds to execute. Fortunately there are simple changes we can make to improve its performance. Let's take a look.
