Hey all, some of the attendees of my session at the OSCON on Wednesday
asked me for my slides and so I thought I would post them here if anyone
else can find value in them.  They can be found at


Anyway now that I've done that, let me tell you how great it was to be
there.  I was lucky enough to have both Bruce and Tom sit in on my
session, and to talk with them both.  Great guys, and Bruce did a stand
up job on the Open Source Database Roundtable, in an environment slanted
towards MySQL (with the host being the PR guy for MySQL).  Though they
did slight some of the more commercial aspects of PostgreSQL I found
them to be both friendly and open to the spirit of community, and very
hostile to trolls and flamers.  You could imagine my surprise to walk in
and find friendly banter between Monty and Tom and Bruce after all the
flame wars, but they were very much above that.  I heard I missed a
great session given by Bruce the previous day, and a good one on
replication the day after.  It was cool putting a face to some of the
people on the list, and I'm sure I'll see you all there next year!
