My travel is booked for OpenSQL camp in Portland on November 14 and 15. It should be a great event in my favorite city. It is also an opportunity to speak with technical people about something other than MySQL. The current sessions are skewed towards MySQL, but Portland has an active PostgreSQL community and is home to Len Shapiro who contributed a lot to the development of high-performance hash joins. I hope there is some kind of PostgreSQL-MySQL exchange. I have yet to propose a topic, but am considering MySQL GIS, MUMPS, embedded InnoDB or the InnoDB plugin.
