Indirect Advocacy

Last week I spoke at the Bellingham Young Professional Group on starting and running a business. It was a well attended presentation. I was nervous at first because although I do a lot of public speaking, I usually speak to technical people. This was a wholly different crowd and I was pulling from a different set of expertise. The crowd was largely under 30 and wanting to start a business …

Do not buy the closed source lie of free videos

There is a nice lie out there. A lot of people want to believe it. They think by believing this lie it will somehow increase something for them. In some ways that is true.

Rich in the Jungle: A AWS to Softlayer comparison for PostgreSQL

I have updated my Rich in the Jungle presentation with new pricing for AWS vs. Softlayer. Things haven't changed much, in terms of raw performance per dollar (which is not the only qualifier). Softlayer is clearly the winner.

The fall of Open Source

Once upon a time FOSS was about Freedom. It was about exposing equality within source code. It allowed everyone equal rights and equal access to the technology they were using. An idea that if you were capable, you could fix code or pay someone to fix code. An ideology that there was something greater than yourself and that there was an inherent right built into what it is to be …

What is good for the community is good for the company (profit is the reward)

As the PostgreSQL community continues down its path of world domination I can't help but wonder whether the various PostgreSQL companies are going to survive the changes. Once upon a time there was an undercurrent of understanding that what was good for the community was good for the company. Whatever company that may be.
