Mark Rittman has a very nice blog (he's quite the wordsmith) and since he's in Denver for Collaborate (flew over from the UK), he's blogging about Collaborate all week too. He attended my "How Essbase Thinks" presentation on Monday and he has for more interesting things to say about the presentation than I said during the presentation. My favorite quote was "The room was packed - around 170 at last count, with people standing at the sides and sitting in the aisle - which is about 160 more than the average Oracle OLAP talk in previous years." Interesting to see how much interest has fallen off for Express (Oracle OLAP) in the last few years. Mark was also surprised that I have a techy side, as he had previously marked me as a "business-type person." I think it was my "CEO" title that threw him.
