Eponymous Pickle Blog

Here it is the middle of November and Franz Dill has blogged over 1220 times this year -- that is about five times every workday.  And Franz is not like Guy Kawasaki with automated tools to generate random posts (sorry, Guy).

Franz manually writes each day on his Eponymous Pickle blog, providing readers with high quality content related to emerging technologies.

I was lucky enough to have lunch with Franz this week and learn more about his work.

At the beginning of 2005, Franz started his personal blog, but was already a professional blogger for the Procter & Gamble Company where he was a chief scientist and an emergent technologist.  Franz wrote content for P&G's innovation centers, which specialize in consumer product research and development.

Franz often writes articles of interest to individuals interested in Business Intelligence software.  For example, please see the following:

Data Mining for Education
SpotFire on the Apple iPad
New Data Visualization Tool
Cindi Howson on Cool BI
