SAVE MySQL!!!

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

“In April 2009, Oracle announced that it had agreed to acquire Sun. Since Sun had acquired MySQL the previous year, this would mean that Oracle, the market leader for closed source databases, would get to own MySQL, the most popular open source database.”

There is worldwide campaign to keep MySQL free and open. Please go to this page, read about the issues and sign the petition to save MySQL from corporate take over.

Thanks

AS3 is over. Great to meet some AS2nauts in AS3. For those AS2nauts who were not there, I miss you all. And thanks Handoko for the coffee exchange. And Myra, Jerome, Diane and Joanna for the gift pack full of sweet Pinoy love. Not forgetting Ela’s picture frame fridge magnet, and the great smile of AS2nauts during AS3. I love you all.
