Alan Whitehouse's Ramblings

Continuing to work until my heavy investment in lottery tickets finally pays off….

    Historically speaking, all true change in the world has come thanks to leaders emerging, them taking charge and giving the masses someone to rally around. Can an intentionally "leaderless" movement survive or will it just slowly fade away?

    You want change, then get involved. Vote, run for office, go to shareholder meetings and contact advertisers or investors. Sitting around banging drums, singing kumbaya, smoking weed and having a camp out under the stars is not going to get you the change you want.

Visio — Who Knew?

Posted by Alan on June 24, 2008

Last week I went to a 2 day data visualization class on Visio 2007.   All I can say is that I owe Visio an appology.  Up until now I pretty much only considered Visio for basic tool that was pretty much good for generating flow charts and that was it.   And even when PerformancePoint Server came out I really only thought the Visio integration with PPS was nothing more than an easy out way for them to do strategy maps (instead of writing a new chart type object) while pushing Visio in the process. 

Boy was I wrong.   I never realized what you could actually do with it.   I can now definately see us using it more than I ever though we would.
