Open Query on Twitter/

Open Query now has its own @openquery account on Twitter and so you can conveniently follow us there for announcements and tips – and also ask us questions! All OQ engineers can post/reply. The OQ site front page also tracks this feed.

Previously I was posting from my personal @arjenlentz account with #openquery hashtag, but that’s obviously less practical.

#songsincode on Twitter, SongsInCodeDB

Looking at twitter #songsincode (just search on #songsincode tag), it appears a large chunk of geeky/nerdy world has come to a halt while spending the day expression song titles in code. So far we’ve seen most programming languages as well as CSS and SQL come by. I think it’s a nice example of how “the collective” can become very creative. My favourite SQL ones so far (by @john_chr): SELECT * FROM walk WHERE gait LIKE '%EGYPTIAN%'

Update: a good friend of mine, Steve Thorne (@Jerub), wanted to set up a site for this, so we hacked one up: SongsInCodeDB.
