Welcome to my BeyeNETWORK Blog. This is going to be the place for us to exchange thoughts, ideas and opinions on all aspects of the information quality and data integration world. I intend this to be a forum for discussing changes in the industry, as well as how external forces influence the way we treat our information asset. The value of the blog will be greatly enhanced by your participation! I intend to introduce controversial topics here, and I fully expect that reader input will "spice it up." Here we will share ideas, vendor and client updates, problems, questions and, most importantly, your reactions. So keep coming back each week to see what is new on our Blog!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend, and are ready to get back to work for the home stretch of the year. I had an interesting experience last Wednesday - my daughter came hoem from school and mentioned that her science teacher had emailed the class letting them know that presuming that the weather was clear, one could view the international space station followed by the undocked space shuttle atlantis cross the sky.

At 6:11 PM EST on Wednesday, I went outside with the kids and we stood out there with our heads looking almost straight up into the (somewhat cloudy) sky. The little ones kept pointing at airplanes, but all of a sudden we saw two bright objects appear, one following the other, sail across the WNW sky, then duck behind some clouds and disappear.

As a kid, I used to excitedly watch the launchings of the Apollo mission Saturn rockets, wondering whether the astronauts would reach their destination or even return alive. But with the multitude of space junk orbiting the earth, and with limited exposure to how incredible it really is to get big things off the ground and floating around the planet, today's children are somewhat immune to the wonder of space flight. Yet it is amazing that my daughter's science teacher can reintroduce that wonder by giving us the chance to experience it first hand, in our own front yeard.
