I'll continue after you've viewed the video...
Someone called me a New Media Douchebag today...jokingly of course. (I hope...)
I posted the video to Twitter and Kris Rice didn't think I complained enough to meet the 3rd requirement. I suggested that I'd be the Susy Sunshine of the New Media Douchebags...or something like that.
I've definitely embraced the idea of the New Media or Social Media or whatever you want to call it. It seems kind of natural to me. I've always been the social butterfly at work, the "nice" IT guy and I love to talk. My old manager struggled with whether this was good or bad. He saw the good of building solid relationships with business types but also the amount of time. I'm sure he wasn't the first manager to be concerned about my talking.
I've become an advocate of the New Media as well.
I think everyone and their mother should blog.
I think everyone should use Twitter.
I created a group on LinkedIn for ORACLENERD(s).
I scored a pass to COLLABORATE 09.
I received detailed instructions on migrating my rpd (OBIEE) file to production from Christian Berg.
I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right now.
This write about this crap all the time now.
I've even discussed doing some sort of presentation on the value of New/Social media.
Am I a New Media Douchebag? Should I relinquish ORACLENERD to someone more deserving? Tell me what you think. Some guy at work said I come off as "Extreme" (I think he meant as a future Exadata team member) in my database ramblings...so I can take it.
