My talk went well, on "A Storage Engine for Amazon S3" - Mark Atwood
My talk went well, on "A Storage Engine for Amazon S3"
My talk was right after the PBXT storage engine talk. PBXT is darncool, it looks to be a leading contender for fast localstore nearly transactional data with lots of blobs and varchars. I was taking lots of notes, especially his "gotchas for storage engine developers" and his "streaming blobs" ideas.

Then a whole bunch of people came in for my talk, almost filling the room. There were a few startup problems with the projector and the mike, and we were off.

Unfortunately, I was scheduled opposite a talk on "Highly Available MySQL Cluster on Amazon EC2", which was annoying because I wanted to go to their talk, they wanted to come to mine, and there were likely a lot of people who wanted to go to both.

It went well. I lagged away from my slides only a few times. The questions at the end were useful, and row of questioners after as well. Someone from, I think, Computer World, did a fast interview. MySQL gifted me, as they did all the speakers, with a PowerSquid, which I just realized that I left in the presentation room.

Too bad about the scheduling, but otherwise I'm happy for you.

What's a PowerSquid?
