I am writing this on my blog because I want to take the Percona hat off (partially) and wear my community hat a bit. My loyalty was to the MySQL community long before I was involved with Percona.
There are now three Percona Live events for which we have signed venue contracts and begun plans: London in October, Washington DC in January, and Santa Clara in April. I have insider knowledge of what’s going on with planning all three events, and I’m proud and happy that I have a community-member seat at the table.

Spencer Johnson is a great writer. His business book classic was a real page turner. He takes a page from the REWORK book and that's a good thing.

This page or area of the website is very slow, why?
I see this message on our forums, and I think it’s a great question: “Which version of Percona Server is currently recommended?” It’s really the same question as “Which version of MySQL is currently recommended?” I’ll respond here and then post a link in the forum as a reply.
I will be presenting The Care and Feeding of a MySQL Database for Linux System Administrators at Linuxcon. This is a short talk on what Linux Admins can do to get their MySQL instances performing properly, where to budget your server money, and some other tips to make life easier. It can not turn a good system admin into a good DBA no more than a 40 minute talk on being a Linux Admin will make a DBA a good Linux Admin. But it is a good overview of the subject.
For those of you in around Sao Paulo this week, Aiton Lastori send me the following:
Next week we will host a MySQL Happy Hour at Oracle's Sao Paulo office.
We are exited because there are room for 100 people and over 500
subscribed! Oracle marketin provided the money for the free beer and Ana, our lead dev in Brazil, and is doing an amazing job organizing
everything. I've created a group in meetup.com http://www.meetup.com/MySQL-BR/.
