2009 in Review

With the end of the year approaching and a new blog starting up here for me, I figured I would seed this new blog with a retrospective on my blogging from 2009.

First, my five most viewed blog posts from 2009:

Analysis: Many folks want the facts. And the release announcement was far and away the most widely read post.

Independently, I compiled the list of my 5 favorite posts from the year (in no particular order)

I am especially fond of the Voicemail, Email and my Dad post for obvious reasons – and it was the post most frequently mentioned by others to me in conversation.

The “Disk is Cheap” post is also a favorite because that has become one of my frequently used phrases when talking about content classification – and I’m sure it will be even more so as I talk about content decommissioning for InfoSphere Content Assessment in the coming year.

Similarly, “Nobody’s Perfect: How Are You Going to Deal With It?” has become a favorite as I think it hits on an issue that I’m frequently discussing with customers: expectations of perfection from content analytics where the human-based alternatives are well short of ideal.

Lastly, “Who actually reads all of their email?“ is a favorite because it was one of those posts where inspiration hit in the morning, I cranked out the post quickly, posted later that day and by the end of the year it was one of the top read posts I put out.

Here’s hoping that there’s many more posts like that to come in 2010.

Happy New Year.

Archives from “The Classification World”

My previous blog, The Classification World, is hosted on ibm.com. Its charter was focused more specifically on content classification and its increasing necessity in enterprise content management (ECM) and specifically compliance applications.  This blog will continue to cover the topics of The Classification World but it will also expand to other related topics with respect to content analytics, structured information and metadata, and broader topics in ECM and Information Management. Before I embark on this new, expanded journey, here is a comprehensive manifest for The Classification World for the reader’s future reference:
