Twitter Channel for SAS Users

Dear All,

Screenshot-SAS Language Central (sascommunity) on Twitter - Mozilla Firefox

I just created a twitter channel for everthying about the SAS language. (independent of SAS institute as of now)

That’s right -using RSS feeeds, keyword filters, key bloggers AND tweeters and using http://www.twitterfeed.com this is a firehose of information on  everything SAS- includes Google Search and Twitter Search. I am still modifying it before transitioning it – Scandavian Airlines messes up some results for examples.

Anyways if you like to follow tech tweets this is one more-

Sometime back I had asked the question- How much do you think would it be to have the top 100 bloggers on SAS language on the same page, in a manner that the RSS feeds get updated on their own. The answer is here-

Wordframe. I had covered this software before in comparison to Ning.com and they proved favorable.

This is a small startup, East Europe based and very hard working. They allegedly wanted to become open source and had plans to create third party applications when I checked with them in January but this may be on hold for a new product launch.

Would sas.com pay for 1000$ set up fee and 200$ monthly fee for getting the top 100 SAS bloggers on their sascommunity.org website.

Would oracle pay for 1000$ set up fee and 200$ monthly fee for getting the top 100 Oracle bloggers on a website sponsored by them.

How much would Aster Data pay for say 100 bloggers about Hadoop ( ahem- assuming there are 100 people who CAN blog about Hadoop- a bit like Einstein’s 5 people in the world can understand his theory of relativity).
