A couple of weeks ago I "attended" a webcast from IOUG by Tom Kyte entitled "Things You Know". You can find the presentation materials online (you might need these codecs). It was a great session with Tom focusing on the dangers of what people think they know to be true versus what reality is. "Trust, but verify" rings loud and clear throughout.

One thing that I wrote down in my notes was a reference Tom made to "Steven Seagal and his many great movies." I don't know Tom's personality at all, but he seems like a pretty straight-shooting guy, so I'm not sure if this was sarcasm or not. It seriously has me worried. At least once a day (usually during my 45-minute commute) I wonder if he was serious or not. Am I the only one?
