The 2010 Data Quality Blogging All-Stars

The 2010 Major League Baseball (MLB) All-Star Game is being held tonight (July 13) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.

For those readers who are not baseball fans, the All-Star Game is an annual exhibition held in mid-July that showcases the players with (for the most part) the best statistical performances during the first half of the MLB season.

Last summer, I began my own annual exhibition of showcasing the bloggers whose posts I have personally most enjoyed reading during the first half of the data quality blogging season. 

Therefore, this post provides links to stellar data quality blog posts that were published between January 1 and June 30 of 2010.  My definition of a “data quality blog post” also includes Data Governance, Master Data Management, and Business Intelligence. 

Please Note: There is no implied ranking in the order that bloggers or blogs are listed, other than that Individual Blog All-Stars are listed first, followed by Vendor Blog All-Stars, and the blog posts are listed in reverse chronological order by publication date.

Live-Tweeting: Data Governance

The term “live-tweeting” describes using Twitter to provide near real-time reporting from an event.  I live-tweet from the sessions I attend at industry conferences as well as interesting webinars.

Recently, I live-tweeted Successful Data Stewardship Through Data Governance, which was a data governance webinar featuring Marty Moseley of Initiate Systems and Jill Dyché of Baseline Consulting.

Instead of writing a blog post summarizing the webinar, I thought I would list my tweets with brief commentary.  My goal is to provide an example of this particular use of Twitter so you can decide its value for yourself.


As the webinar begins, Marty Moseley and Jill Dyché provide some initial thoughts on data governance:

Please Share Your Thoughts

If you attended the webinar, then you know additional material was presented.  Did my tweets do the webinar justice?  Did you follow along on Twitter during the webinar?  If you did not attend the webinar, then are these tweets helpful?

What are your thoughts in general regarding the pros and cons of live-tweeting?
