DataStage® Release: 7x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
The ittoolbox web site is running IT Community Choice Awards for favourite blogs. If you have read and enjoyed my blog An Expert's Guide to WebSphere Information Integration on that site please vote for me at:
http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/awards/2006/

I am hoping to sneak into the top 5 "Best New Blog" category.

If you haven't seen my blog yet there is a mixture of DataStage tips:
DataStage tip for beginners: developer short cuts
DataStage server v enterprise: some performance stats

Data Integration news:
Business Objects buys FirstLogic and data quality is the flavour of the month
Informatica snags a bargain and completes a jigsaw

And IT satire:
Call transcript from a Data Warehouse help line
A Million Little Pieces of Data - Chapter 1

My thanks to dsxchange members for helping me become an ittoolbox "star blogger" after just two months and I hope I can keep bringing blog readers back to this forum. There is a great synergy between technical IT bloggers and forums.

One vote from me.

Your IT satire cracks me up because I have encounted some of it on projects and is to true.

Don't spend the prize money too quickly Laughing

Thanks for the great feedback, it is one of the things that makes blogging rewarding.

You can also nominate one of my entries for best blog entry of 2005 but you need to choose entry from last year.

For DataStage tips I recommend you read: DataStage server v enterprise: some performance stats
If you prefer my satire you could nominate one of my personal favourites:
A day in the life of a metadata zookeeper

You will find the "Nominate this for Best Blog Entry 2005" link at the bottom of the blog entry.

Thanks for your support!

I've been nominated for Best New Blog! Please head over to http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/awards/2006/ and vote for me on the second voting screen. "An Experts Guide to WebSphere Information Integration" is currently running equal third on 12%. I'm up against some very good bloggers and I would like to thank everyone on the site who nominated me and got me to the short list.

I didn't make the top 5 for best blog entry but that was kind of rigged towards the 20 entries the site proposed to voters.

Hi,
Hailing from a technology used by minority poeple (when compared to other technologies like DB2, Java...), and Winning or getting recognized among all is a very big task. You may be carried away among those big shots, still you have your own way of representation and getting things done. Keep going.
Added up one vote. Very Happy
