  1. Roberto,

    Arg, have to type this all again!!

    I’m enjoying your blog. I think I’m in the same space as you actually. I’ve been working with companies for over ten years, integrating Oracle with open-source technologies, so it always seemed an obvious mix to me. However sitting in at Oracle User Group events, and open-source ones, it is so dramatic the contrast of perspectives. For instance Oracle Open World (next week) or Collaborate (from IOUG) are so dramatically different from O’Reilly’s MySQL conference. I like you remain fairly agnostic about the whole thing.

    May the best solution to the problem at hand always win…

  2. Hi Sean,
    I really enjoyed your posts. Time by time I wrote posts about what I call “open source recommendations”, so you’re always welcome.

    About agnosticism, well, being defined as “an absence of knowledge (or any claim of knowledge)”, I prefer consider myself as atheist, defined as “”a condition of being without theistic beliefs”. To be honest to you I spent some years with the Church of Emacs, but I eventually turned to the dark side of open source! ;-)
