…don't use your thing. Even if I tried your thing out and I gave you my so-called Expert advice , how would it matter? Anyway, why are you asking me? Why don't you ask your community what they think of your thing?

And if you don't have a community of users and customers around your thing, well, there's your problem right there. Go fix that .

Like I said, I don't get asked for advice too often. But for what it's worth, it is serious advice. And the …

…tips you have to share. You do NOT have to be an All-time Lean Startup Expert for us to take you seriously (indeed, that's the whole point--we already know those people). What you do need is a relevant experience or some advice that other people can learn from. Most of the time, a straight-up story about how you followed lean principles at your organization and did pretty well with them is not that useful for other entrepreneurs. Instead, consider things like: What hypotheses did you …

…instead of the bad. Jeff put it another way — to take the "evil" out of Expert's Exchange. They also sought to identify existing problems in other similar systems and fix them with Stack Overflow.

When Stack Overflow was launched, that didn't end Jeff's quest to challenge the status quo. The Q&A site deploys changes on a daily basis, which is crucial to have for a site that's constantly live. To me, unless you're changing all the time, you're …

…haven't touched C# in any real capacity in years, then why are you e-mailing me about a "C# Expert" position (well, I'll you why, because they're not reading the resume, but still). Evaluate the information you have available to you before you even reach out. It'll pay off for you.

The MySQL kernel can only physically process a certain number of SQL statements for a given time period (e.g. per second). Regardless of the type of machine you have, there is a physical limit. If you eliminate SQL …

…with an information packed interview on a wide range of cloud topics: Cloud Expert Inside theCube at Stata Conference . Highlights: cloud is an operations model, it is not a technology, it is a way to apply technology to problems; the faster you can get the resources into the hands of the people who use it the more money you save overall; cloud is a cash flow story, not a savings story; services aren't about servers or storage, they are about applications.

Here's the latest in Channel 9's "Expert to Expert" series of videos - a "whiteboard jam" between two big brains:

Greg Meredith, mathematician and computer scientist

Brian Beckman, astrophysicist and software architect (sounds like one of those "architecture astronauts" that Joel Spolsky liked to rant about!)

Here's the abstract for the video:
