I’ve written an article called “Eight Sound Reasons Not to Use MySQL” which has been published on CIO.com today opposite Tina Gasperson‘s article, 5 Compelling Reasons to Use MySQL. The topics were assigned, not so much as a point:counterpoint but as a way of presenting views from both sides. If you haven’t read it yet, give it a look. If you did that and followed a link based on that article to find me here, welcome. What you’ll find around here isn’t all tech-speak, there’s a lot of management and marketing stuff as well… and you’re more than welcome to hang around a while and poke around, subscribe, whatever. Let it be known that there are a few things I want to say about the article though.
