This is an invitation to all SAS language bloggers to help spread the world at a forum where leading authors come together. This offer is only for products relating to SAS Product ( WPS Bloggers are not part of this invite)
There are many bloggers already from SAS Institute (Jason Burke,Gary Conkins) and others from SAP,Aster Data.
Currently 2 SPSS Bloggers are there -Jon Peck and Tim Manns.
Business Intelligence experts like James Mason , Peter Thomas ( recently debating with Jim Davis ,SAS SVP Marketing on business analytics versus business intelligence) help create a lively intellectual discussion.
Total number of blog feeds is more than 250.There is one from R David Smith, from Revolution Computing.

The Smart Data Collective is the Data-Driven Enterprise Community.

If you have a blog already, join smartdatacollective.com as a member and featured blogger (which, I hasten to add, involves no additional work on your part.) We can set up an RSS feed link to your existing blog so your posts automatically become part of the SmartData Collectivecontent flow with no further effort from you.
As a member/contributor you'll be able to connect and interact with other experts and connect with many of the world's leading business organizations. You can create a profile to promote yourself and your work. The posts are moderated by an editor and we select only those that are on-target for this particular community.
This is a great, no-hassle way to grow your professional reputation and reach lots of new readers. You will be listed as a featured blogger on the main page with a link back to your blog on each individual post and, of course, this is a non-exclusive agreement. You retain the copyright to your work. We also draw from our bloggers for webinars and other outreach efforts.
Send me a note if you'd like to participate.
