Just booked my flight to MySQL Camp in Mountain View 10-12 Nov 2006. That is the un-conference where we look forward to hanging out with some core MySQL community members. Quite a few proposed session topics, on anything from advice on getting VC funding, to high performance database schemas for folksonomy applications. I might consider presenting the one on how to run a global distributed organisation if the topic gets enough votes.
Right now, I counted 29 attendees in the participant list. Hope to meet with many more MySQL community members there!
