Chet, the ORACLENERD, dropped me a note yesterday. He’s thinking about expanding his empire to include more Oracle content.
Sounds like a good idea. Team blogs are a great way to spread the work and add new perspective (unlike this blog), and I assume Chet’s plan is to spread his coverage to include some new areas of Oracle with which he’s not familiar.
I think Chet will make an announcement or chase people on Twitter, his latest obsession, but since I’ve been low on content lately, even for me, I figured I could help spread the word here. If you’re interested in joining the ORACLENERD family, hit Chet up on his blog or on Twitter (@oraclenerd).
I did pepper him with questions about his motives. Doesn’t sound like driving pageviews and ad revenues are in the future, but I wouldn’t cross world domination off that list just yet. I think he just wants to add some new blood to his blog and spread the nerd love to more people.
Speaking of nerd love, remember that Chet has been pretty good at getting people to listen to him, e.g. he got into COLLABORATE 09 for free to tweet and blog about the conference. And he didn’t just attend, he got to interview people like Jan Wagner, former president of OAUG.
So, maybe this is the ground floor for the Oracle version of TechCrunch? You know you’re curious.
Also, I owed Chet an action shot of me wearing his logo shirt in the Wild (thanks). Click through for a Photo Booth extra.
I’m still waiting for ORACLENERD stickers.
Update: Chet has informed me that his branding should be in all caps, something or other about screaming. So, I’ve changed it here to avoid a nasty note from his legal team 🙂
