Bill Inmon has given me this wonderful opportunity to blog on his behalf. I like to cover everything from DW2.0 to integration to data modeling, including ETL/ELT, SOA, Master Data Management, Unstructured Data, DW and BI. Currently I am working on ways to create dynamic data warehouses, push-button architectures, and automated generation of common data models. You can find me at Denver University where I participate on an academic advisory board for Masters Students in I.T. I can't wait to hear from you in the comments of my blog entries. Thank-you, and all the best; Dan Linstedt http://www.COBICC.com, danL@danLinstedt.com

I blogged about the Stinkiest Shoe Competition back in May 2005. Read it here... This time I come to find out that a sock manufacturer has actually created (or is working on creating) anti-stink SOCKS through nanotech.

**Note, this blog is not for those with severe allergic reaction to big stinks...** (this entry is short and light hearted) :)

I asked the question: what would happen if a shoe manufacturer could utilize or apply nanotech in a way that would make tennis shoes less stinky? Now with less stinky socks do we even need to worry about stink free shoes? Probably - especially for those who don't wear socks.

But besides the point, read about this Boston Sock Manufacturer and their application of nanotech to sock material here... Really, I'm not kidding. I think there's big money to be made in the business of applying nanotech to solving every day problems like stinky shoes and now, stinky feet.

All I need now is a pair of socks that "don't get cold when my feet sweat."

Weigh in now, tell us how you feel - would you buy a pair of these socks? You can answer anonymously or "for a friend of yours" if you like...

See you next time, Dan L
