The Info World article has appeared:

	http://www.infoworld.com/article/03/11/20/HNpostgre_1.html

Based on the questions he asked, I thought he was going to do a more
detailed article, but I now realize it was probably just so he
understands the project itself.

You can see that they refer to us as a "company" earlier in the article:

	"the company also has added"

Anyway, at the end, they clarify that it is an open source project. 
Hopefully this is the start of many more articles.

They only mentioned SRA.   I was hoping he would say we have support
companies world-wide.  Anyway, it was a nice article.
