“This must be a fashionable fight, it’s drawn the finest people.”


Last week, in in one of the comment threads, several of you were all over me with suggestions and questions, in a very good way.

And I think that’s to be expected, even though I know my way around this stuff pretty well.  I mean, “I can take the Pepsi challenge with that Amsterdam stuff any day.”  (That’s for you, Kasper.  And Pulp Fiction fans everywhere.)

But no one can really know every trick, every optimal method.  Excel and PowerPivot are both just too deep for one person to master everything.  And this is why community interaction is so much fun!  Everyone has something to teach, to suggest, or even to ask – and all of those activities enrich us all.

With all that said, it’s time for me to stop hogging the microphone.  If you have something cool you want to share – a data set you used, a technique you discovered, something you saw me do but you think you can improve it, let me know.  I’d be happy to post it here.  If you have your own blog, you can of course post it there, too – I’m just offering my site as a way to get more exposure for your ideas.

So, drop me an email if you have something in mind.  This is a standing offer.

And don’t worry, I’m not going to stop posting.  You can’t keep me away from this stuff 🙂
