help me obi-wan karia you’re my only hope!


I haven’t blogged all week and I’m feeling a little guilty about it, so I thought I’d share the following piece of creative writing by Ketan Karia, Actian SVP of Marketing. It’s taken directly from an email exchange with Ketan when we were discussing Monty’s motivation to publish such a revealing behind the scenes look at MySQL 5.1.

Purist Yoda became ever more bitter as he watched his protégé, Skywalker, sacrifice the core values of his Open Force in order to perform PR tricks for the desperate Proprietor(y) Darth Vadar.

Had Luke turned completely since embracing the Dark Side? Or was there some good left somewhere deep inside DeathStar Palo Alto?

Desperate to find out, Yoda publically denounces his own, hoping to rouse whatever good was left after the CYL-UN acquisition!

Little did he know, that by doing so, he was playing into the hands of the rising force – INGRES !!!

Tune in next week for our geek guide to holiday gifts!
