“We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
When you think about it, this PowerPivot thing is still really, really small. I mean, I’m thrilled with the level of readership here already, but then I remind myself “Hey Rob, you realize that less than 0.1% of the eventual target audience has even heard of PowerPivot yet, right?” – well that’s just hard to contemplate.
We’re just getting started. Actually, we’re just getting started on the getting started 🙂
Similarly, the number of people passionate enough about this stuff to set up blogs devoted specifically to PowerPivot (and SharePoint BI in general) – it just keeps growing.
First, Vidas Matelis is reprising his excellent SSAS-info.com specifically for PowerPivot, with the introduction of powerpivot-info.com – I’m sure we will see great things there 🙂
Second, two of my colleagues at MS were inspired by PASS (as I was inspired by the SharePoint conference) to set up shop as well:
Dave Wickert at PowerPivotGeek.com
Denny Lee at PowerPivotTwins.com
…and if you were at PASS, you already know what these guys can do 🙂
Some of you have asked if this is a coordinated effort by MS, all this PowerPivot blogging by employees. The answer is a definitive No. We all did this independently. In fact, now that we’re all here, it would be good for us to coordinate a little bit on behalf of everyone out there, so we’re not duplicating content, etc. – the three of us will huddle (virtually) and see what we can do.
