Working with Marten

(Or the perils of working at home too much)


I was out of town for Marten's going away party so I decide to put together a brief video recalling what it was like to work with Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL for the last 5+ years.  Inspired by Joaquin Phoenix, or perhaps it was the Unambomber, it came out a bit weird.  But what the heck.

Marten, it just won't be the same without you.  Thank you for your leadership and the confidence you bestowed in those who worked for you.  Confidence enough to pay tribute to you in MySQL boxer shorts.  There's also a slightly more professional "Toast to Marten" video that I created at the OSBC conference. 


Ha. Nice video.
