Title: SAS Workplan Resource

Location: Long Island, NY

Duration: 3 Months


* Work with HP team to develop a workplan for the development and
delivery of customer segmentation capability using SAS. Segmentation model
will be based on advanced statistical analysis of a customer's viewing

* Resource will also provide as part of the workplan, estimates of
time and resources (including role definitions) required to complete the

* Resource will need to come up to speed quickly on the project and
the data environment in order to gauge level of effort and approach

Building the segmented viewer profile (the work that this resource will be
estimating) will involve:

1) Examining / analyzing existing dimensional data, including demographic
and sociographic data associated with the viewer profile.

1) Examining / analyzing of Set-Top Box (STB) tuning event data with the
viewer profile to derive patterns of viewing behavior.

2) Derivation of additional dimensional attributes for a given viewer
profile based on observed and analyzed patterns of behavior. This may
include, but is not limited to, derived measures, components, etc.

3) Creating the associated models that will be used to score the
appropriate viewer profiles in the Audience Measurement Data Warehouse for
each identified segment.

We want the person doing the estimation to actually have done this sort of
work before. Potentially, this resource will be retained to actually
perform the delivery of these services (ie. as the lead SAS resource).

1. Notification without status bar icon

does anyone nkow how to create a notification without putting  an icon

2. calendar sync with outlook


My HTC Hero syncs fine mostly with Outlook 07, for contacts and
calendar, but it did not copy a calendar entry from my phone, colour
coded My Calendar, back into Outlook.  Why?  Can this be fixed?

While here can the sync be developed to sync Notes from Outlook, or
should I just migrate to a google cloud?
