Claudia Imhoff

Welcome to my blog.

This is another means for me to communicate, educate and participate within the Business Intelligence industry. It is a perfect forum for airing opinions, thoughts, vendor and client updates, problems and questions. To maximize the blog's value, it must be a participative venue. This means I will look forward to hearing from you often, since your input is vital to the blog's success. All I ask is that you treat me, the blog, and everyone who uses it with respect.

So...check it out every week to see what is new and exciting in our ever changing BI world.

Every now and then, I use my blog for something that has nothing to do with BI. Sometimes I use it for humor, sometimes a rant against a pet peeve, and sometimes -- like this time -- for something that I found astonishing.

I recently received something from a friend of mine -- the email from the friend was ordinary enough -- the link in the email to a website was ordinary enough -- the site content was far from ordinary. I leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions...

Thanks for posting that! It's a pretty amazing series. Would love to see it in person. Extremely sobering and very elegantly done.

Great link Claudia!

Thanks for the link, this work is outstanding. Jordan does an amazing job of taking abstract concepts like "mass consumption" and making them concrete and visible.

I have shared this with several people ... it is just amazing. And a real eye-opener in how much waste a society can generate.

Some of my friends began recycling at home after seeing these pics.

Merry Christmas Claudia! Thanks for sharing your wisdom with Kansas City (KC) DAMA this year. Look forward to seeing you in February.

Thanks for the kind words and well wishes, Janet. Same back to you as well. We just hung the ornaments I got while in KC on our tree last weekend. They add to our memories!
