Read this...

I read a lot of "stuff".  Yeah, I know, I'm writing less here - but that leaves more time to read over there...

I read lots of blogs, lots of forums.  I lurk.  I observe.  I see what people are saying.

 

I liked what Cary Millsap just said:

I don’t mean “show and tell,” where someone claims he has improved performance at hundreds of customer sites by hundreds of percentage points [sic], so therefore he’s an expert. I mean show your work, which means documenting a relevant baseline measurement, conducting a controlled experiment, documenting a second relevant measurement, and then showing your results openly and transparently so that your reader can follow along and even reproduce your test if he wants to.

Check out the entire posting - and the book he is talking about.  Also, check out his new venture.  A pretty good read...
