  1. Hello James,
    I’m writing to you because I think I might have something of interest for your blog. I am an experienced CIO in the financial industry and I have put my experience and opinions in a new book: « IT’s hidden face », subtitle: « Everything you always wanted to know about Information Technology. A look behind the scenes. »
    I believe my book is of particular interest to your readership as it throws light into the hidden world of an Information Technology department in a company and closes the communication gap between business and IT. The book has received numerous Press reviews (you may check my website http://www.clauderoeltgen.com for a complete list) and so far it has received 17 five-star ratings at amazon.com.
    I would be delighted if you would consider presenting my book in your blog. If you agree, it would be possible that I have a dialogue with your readers as I am happy to respond to comments.
    I hope you’ll give this a try. I’ve prepared an HTML document http://www.clauderoeltgen.com/its_hidden_face_blog.htm with a short excerpt from the book, its cover art, some Press reviews and amazon customer statements. You’re free to reproduce this document on your site or provide links.
    I’d also like to send you a complimentary review copy of the book, just let me know where to mail it.
    Thanks for your consideration,
    Claude Roeltgen

  3. I’m having trouble registering for the Pentaho forum. I completed the registration form but there was no place to enter for Image Verification. I received this message:

    The string you entered for the image verification did not match what was displayed.

    • What URL are you accessing? The URL for the Data Lake presentation should not ask you to register.

  4. Hi James,
    I am Usha Iyer, a Senior Acquisition Editor with Packt Publishing. As an Acquisition Editor, it is my role to evaluate, develop and ultimately bring book ideas to publication. I am also responsible for finding the right author for any book; bringing them onboard, then working with them as the book is written.

    We are planning to update our Pentaho reporting book and I am looking for a suitable author for this book.
    You can find some more information about writing for us at Packt’s website http://www.packtpub.com/authors.

    Please contact me if you are interested in writing this book and I would love to discuss the opportunity with you further.

    Even if you do not want to involve yourself in the project, can you please suggest someone who may suit this project?

    Email: ushai@packtpub.com
