It's the end of the year and, before the world ends ;-) , I feel the pressure
to follow up on last year's article "2011, a great year for MySQL in Review". I'll
adopt a similar format and mention things in context, covering
products, marketing, momentum, etc. at a high level. I may have
missed something and I hope my colleagues will contribute to the

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research. Founded in 1954 and located near Geneva on the Franco-Swiss border, CERN was one of Europe’s first joint ventures. Today, it has 20 member states.
