So there have been a lot of talk recently about plagiarism in our little corner of the Internet. If you haven’t read up on it you can read up here, here, and here. Sadly this wasn’t the first time that plagiarism has reared its head recently. The prior incidents can be found here, here, here and here (among others).
While I was up at the SQL 2008 R2 Tweet Up my friends Sean and Jen from MidnightDBA (@MidnightDBA) and Jorge Segarra (@SQLChicken) and I got together to talk a bit about plagiarism in general and this recent incident. The talk was recorded and they published it over the weekend as part of the DBAs @ Midnight series of videos. The video was broken down into 4 sections when they uploaded it (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4).
Hopefully you’ll have as much fun watching the video as we had making it. During the videos we are pretty critical of some people within the community (if you’ve read the blog posts I link to above you can probably guess who).
Oh, and some of the language isn’t kid/boss safe. Consider yourself warned.
