Today's big news: hosting a Twitter chat

I'm doing something interesting today that I wanted y'all to know about: I'll be hosting a Twitter chat to explain the ins and outs of analytics.

The session is hosted by SAS Canada, a major vendor of business analytics and business intelligence (BI) software. One of the key reasons why I'm as excited as I am about this particular chat is that analytics (or big data) is one of those areas that most regular folks like us think will never apply to them. We assume big data is all about big companies, and little people like us - individuals, small businesses, even your mom - don't need to worry about it.

Au contraire.

We all need to learn more about analytics, why it matters to us, and how we can get ourselves up to speed. It isn't difficult to wrap yourself around the concept, but a little guidance never hurts.

That's what today is about. SAS Canada will have an expert on hand to answer the major questions folks might have, and I'm looking forward to a fast, fun and informative discussion.

The fun starts at noon (Eastern) today and will run for an hour. To participate, simply follow the #SASanalytics hashtag in Twitter (or click here.) Feel free to follow me on Twitter (@carmilevy) and the @SASCanada team, as well.

For more background on today's chat, click on the entry I wrote on the blog - link here.

Look forward to seeing you there, and feel free to pass this along. The more the merrier.

I'd listen to your chat, Carmi, but I still refuse to sign up for Twitter.

(Of course, I still refuse to get one of them sell phones, too...)

For a social chat room software that supports Twitter login plus many other social logins give chatwing a try, every aspect is cutomizable and free for unlimited usage!
