Subject:Fwd: Re: Help Save MySQL
View as plain text  
Lets register the domain www.keep-mysql-open.com, build a champain,
and ask all our partners, clients and friends to support to it?

And let's make some noise... Let's engage the society and big
companies like Google, Facebook, twitter, 37Signals, Amazon, Percona,
etc. And starting talking to the media like TechCrunch.com,
BusinessWeek, ZD.Net, etc.

Without society's engagement we won't acomplish anything!

Regards,
Bruno B. B. Magalhães
