Sometimes I run across a story that is just too amazing to pass up. This one had me just shaking my head in disbelief. No, it has nothing to do with BI, data warehousing or even business unless an analogy can be drawn. Be warned though -- If you have a weak stomach, stop reading now.

I just got back from the Teradata user conference - PARTNERS -- in not-so-sunny Orlando. The weather was not the greatest but the conference, in which 3200 attendees showed up, sure was. From an excruciatingly funny keynote address given by Scott Adams (creator of the Dilbert comic strip) to numerous informative sessions to interesting conversations in between sessions with customers and employees of Teradata, it was a most enjoyable time. Here is a highlight from just one session I attended. It was given by Mohan Sawhney, a professor at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
