    I updated the google doc spreadsheet with my OOW ASH talk (featuring Kellyn Pot’vin)

    Also, can you change my Oaktable talk from “ASH Math” to “Average Active Sessions”?

    Thanks JB, I’ve always wanted to be a feature… :)

    Kyle – please update my title to: Agile Data Warehouse Modeling: Data Vault Data Modeling (don’t want anyone coming to hear about Oracle Database Vault – they would be very disappointed)
