Marathon, Mark Two

Last year, I blogged after an extraordinary event:


Marathon Man


Craig Cmehil hosted a 24 hour webcast – quite the feat!  So how will he top this achievement in 2010? Well firstly, he has a few guests lined up that were not hosts last year, including Sue Keohan, my ASUG pal and SAP Mentor, Sandy Kemsley, a fantastic writer, commentator, Michael Krigsman, whom I met in Phoenix last fall and have followed on Twitter for much longer, Gregor Wolf, a 2008 SAP Tech Ed Clue-Train companion, and (including but not limited to), James Governor (“monkchips“) at 5:00 AM Eastern Time.

For my part, I’m once again tunneling Craig’s show from the furthest reaches of the internet into the mainstream, corporate America big business enterprises through the channels of the America’s SAP Users Group, with an officially scheduled webcast:


Calendar page – registration required.


The official email announcement hasn’t gone out yet; as this is somewhere between a skunk works project and a community meet-up get together improv show, the agenda will evolve up to and through the last minute.  


Maybe I’ll put together some video clips for Craig to show. He liked this one last year:
