Do you know an IBM Data Champion published. In that entry I had specifically mentioned the authors in the group, but beyond authors of retail books, I'd like to mention some of the other ways Data Champions have been very active.
IBM Redbooks in the DB2 area:
Book reviewers for DB2 content:
Again I know I'm going to miss several people who were very active in reviewing either IBM Redbooks or Retail books to ensure that they were accurate before they published. I thank you all! I'd like to specifically mention Fred Sobotka who was the key influencer and reviewer on the following book:
Beginning DB2: From Novice to Professional (Expert's Voice) by Grant Allen (Hardcover - Aug 14, 2008)
40 Used & new from $12.50

I've enjoyed writing about these people and have ideas for future entries... ie, those critical for conference successes, those who contributed in areas beyond DB2, and more! Send me ideas if you have them.
Thanks again to all current Data Champions and be sure to nominate any people who you think are strong contributors who are not recognized yet.
