I've been involved with the Drizzle project since very soon after it began, working on it on nights and weekends.
That has just changed. As of today, I'm no longer a MySQL Professional Services consultant, instead I'm part of a new division of Sun
Much of my time is to be spent working on Drizzle, with a focus on plugin interfaces and making it work well in Extremely Large distributed environments.
I will be blogging heavily about what I am doing. How I sort that blogging out between my personal LiveJournal, my (mostly unused) Sun employee blog, and maybe some other blog system, remains TBD.
This is going to be fun.
