Drizzle is now my job
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.

Re: congrats!

Well, that depends on the definition of "new" and "different".

Re: congrats!

Or, as we say in the social sciences: That all depends on your metatheoretical standpoint, clearly.

That sounds like an awful lot of fun.

If you go with "another blog system," Wordpress does have a really nice suite of controls for interfacing twitter, LJ, Flicker, and Google Calender into a massive Center of the Universe sorta thing. You just have to actually, you know, use it.

Unlike me.

Re: Drizzle is now my job

I think you are making a lot of people envious! :)

But I can understand your excitement. Drizzle is a great project to be part of!
