Yep. Last week we had an "Encuentro Nacional de Linux", which is
basically that sort of event for the whole lot of open source community
in Chile. I gave my usual talk (an hour or so) on Postgres and had my
usual share of 100 or 150 people (this is about 1/4 the total
attendance, I guess). I'm not a professional speaker by whatever
measure so I'm not sure why people keep coming to my talks ;-)
Anyway there were some good questions and I received good comments
afterwards. I am told there are some people that start using Postgres
because of its presence at the Encuentro Nacional.
MySQL has never had a talk here. Guess we are not a big enough market
for MySQL AB.
BTW, there's this article at LWN.net, "MySQL gets more customers,
doubles sales" (http://lwn.net/Articles/57920/). If you read the user
comments, there are only 2 which do _not_ mention PostgreSQL (out of 7).
