  • PASS Program Committee - Comments and Action

    Once again, I am serving on the PASS Program Committee this year for the App Dev Track.  As we are about to start the reviewing process, I had some thoughts that I wanted to share.  Last year, we had approximately 200 abstracts to review.  It should be a similar volume this year.  For me, abstracts usually go into three piles - ...

  • After Ten Years...

    Life goes on and sometimes it is just time to move on.  I am no longer with Scalability Experts.  Looking back at all of the time that I spent with them, I realize how fortunate that I was to be part of it.

    Now that it has been a few weeks since the Summit, I wanted to look back at the location ''experiment''.

  • PASS - Regional Seats First

    After thinking about how to cast my votes for the PASS Election, I thought about the process and how one could get confused (and even upset) if the process for seating successful candidates was not already laid out.  I found this on the PASS Elections site which proved to be helpful.  The scenario that I thought of was the ...

  • PASS Candidates Announced and Campaign Time Has Begun

    Today was the official announcement of the Candidates and the official start of the Campaign.  PASS Campaigns sure have changed a lot since I originally ran for a seat (and lost) in 2002.  The process has changed to become more rigorous in the Nomination stage.  This is a very good thing because in my view, there are no bad choices ...
