In the student presentations at different universities I've talked about the importance of "visibility" as a way to improve your career prospective. Thanks to the internet, one way to gain visibility is to blog!. We are running an initiative this October 1st to encourage as many people in the DB2 Community to participate on an "online community activity". This could be blogging about DB2 or pureXML as explained in my presentations, or other information management related topics. You are not limited to blogging. You can also participate in DB2 forums (for example the DB2 Express-C forum), comment on the free DB2 on Campus videos, and so on. Any online activity would be good!. So don't wait, mark October 1st as a day to take action and gain visibility!
