How did THIS blog make the Oracle OpenWorld news rounds?

I'm in a hotel in Louisville, waiting for the concluding banquet for the conference that I'm attending. But things keep on happening that remind me of a conference that I'll attend next month.

First, I decided to make a presentation at next month's Oracle OpenWorld Unconference.

Then I found out that my blog writings have been cited in an Oracle blog. This in itself isn't surprising - my blogs have been featured by Oracle over the years - but what is surprising is that it's THIS blog - the Empoprise-NTN blog - that was cited.

This morning, Jack Flynn wrote a post entitled "Around the World." This is (part of) what he said:

Empoprise-NTN High Noon—Beale Street Bar and Grill (San Francisco, CA)

Worried about your trivia skills getting rusty while at the conference? Don’t fret. Blogger Empoprise has already found an NTN Buzztime location for you close to the Moscone Center—which is named after former San Francisco mayor George Moscone, in case you get asked.

The favorite part of the citation is the fact that Flynn managed to work a trivia question into the thing.

(Other possible answers include Dianne Feinstein and Willie Brown. Harvey Milk is not a correct answer.)

So, much to my surprise, I am going to add the openworld08 label to this post.

And you know what this means.

Yes, I'll have to write about Elvis Costello and Seal in Empoprise-MU.
