I’m on the SAP business flash subscription. This is a traditional push email subscription thingy that customers and SAP watchers get. It provides links to press releases, marketing stuff, webcasts, training courses and so on. I’m guessing that most SAP customers have not become RSS junkies, so email subscriptions are a good way to reach these folks. That said, you can also get it via this RSS feed. (I’d prefer if this was abit more granular, but it is a feed at least)
I scanned the flash, and was about to go on to other email, when I saw this.
Get a First Look at Project Muse: User Interface Blog Generates 32,000 Hits!
Read the second most-read SDN blog of all time! With over 32,000 hits, the Project Muse blog from Jeff Word of the SAP Product and Technology Group discusses the new interface through which SAP users can access any SAP application directly from their Macintosh, Linux or Windows client device. Also check out the related Project Muse demo and fact sheet
This is not the formal forum stuff on SDN, just the individual blog section there. This is a pretty good indicator of SDN’s relevance to SAP customers, it also makes the point that improving SAP’s UI is of interest to the customer base.
Within SDN blogging is taking off, with more and more folks contributing. (not all of it is brilliant and profound, but there is a lot of conversion going on.) The wiki is growing too. Also the lines are blurring between external blogging about SDN and “internal” SDN blogging.

I often find myself reading through tons of blogs outside of the community here to find out what others have to say about the community here and I started to come across several bloggers in the outside world that not only talk about SAP but they talk about SDN as well.
One example I found was in his year end wrap up, Vinnie talks about SAP’s SDN: Such Delightful News
Another interesting way for you to track who is blogging about us is with a new little interesting “tag” we’ve started. You can find out more about this new way via our Wiki over here in the Community section – Blogging about SAP or via multiple other types of tags:
Technorati Tags: vinnie mirchandani, thomas otter, sdn blogger, sap
So if you are a blogger outside of SDN/BPX about SAP please add yourself to the list on the Wiki and be sure if you write a related post to use the “Technorati Tag” sdn blogger and keep them coming in 2007!
So, if you blog about SAP, why not go and add yourself to the wiki? Even curmudgeons welcome.
