On the road again - FOSSAsia
It has been a few busy months until now. I have moved from Italy to Thailand, and the move has been my first priority, keeping me from attending FOSDEM and interacting with social media. Now I start catching my breath, and looking around for new events to attend. But before I get into this, let’s make a few things clear:
- I am still working for Continuent. Actually, it’s because of my company flexibility that I could move to a different country (a different continent, 6 time zones away) without much trouble. Thanks, Continuent! (BTW: Continuent is hiring! )
- I am still involved with MySQL activities, events, and community matters. I just happen to be in a different time zone, where direct talk with people in Europe and …
Over at David Stoke's Open Source DBA blog, the following was posted: http://opensourcedba.wordpress.com/2013/07/05/mysql-is-looking-for-external-contributions My reply: Allow me to contribute code with a BSD (3-clause) license without having to sign anything new and then we can talk.

By last Friday morning the open bugs count raised above 150 mark and we managed to take it down to under 25 by the end of the day, thanks to the dedicated effort by the team. Among them, one was to make the Nodejs server run continuously. In our application we are using the Nodejs […]
We’ve written about how a bad economy is indeed good for open source software. We’ve also recognized that with open source software’s maturity and place at the enterprise software table, a bad economy can be a double-edged sword for open source since the failure or fade of large enterprise customers, say big banks, hurts open source vendors right alongside traditional software providers.
What is interesting is that after a couple of years of economic rebuilding, we’ve seen recently how open source is being driven by innovation, particularly in cloud computing, …[Read more]
Here's an interview with Nicolas Pujol who has written an excellent new book called "The Mind Share Market." Nicolas and I were colleagues at MySQL for several years and we often discussed the role of our free open source product as a way to gain market share in the commercial sector. In MySQL's case, our goal was to be the #1 choice for web developers worldwide both in the free and the commercial market. Over the years, the notion of having a free product has transcended Open Source and now has many more applications in other markets. It can be quite …[Read more]
UPDATE: The final vote is in and a winner has been declared, with Matt Asay and his arguments for the GPL taking the prize. You can see the debate or follow links to the other judges’ votes and thoughts here.

For that, I congratulate and thank the panelists, Mike Milinkovich from the Eclipse Foundation arguing for the Eclipse Public License, Matt Asay of Alfresco arguing in favor of the GPL and David Maxwell from Coverity arguing for …[Read more]
