Bringing fresh blood to the MySQL Council
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The MySQL Council has been operational for more than one year, with mixed fortunes. As an early member, I am glad to be a member, and I feel that I have done something useful by participating in this organism. The council is young, and the MySQL community is variegated and sparse.

Dueling Conferences and the Art of Hyperbole
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last week someone sent me an article about the “dueling” MySQL conferences from IOUG and O’Reilly. On the one hand, I find it really entertaining that there’s a perception that, three years ago, when the Sun acquisition wasn’t even on the radar, we purposefully scheduled our conferences against each other in anticipation of this moment. If we had a crystal ball or the ability to see the future that well, I would have picked better lottery numbers three weeks ago.
