mysql, the disruptive database that could

i don't think, according to clayton christensen's own criteria, that mysql technically meets the requirements to be labelled a disruptive innovation . but when the likes of sabre holdings announce that they are have chosen the open source database for travelocity, travel Agencies and airlines , it seems like it might be "good enough" [ in the sense of the phrase that characterizes all truly distruptive innovations ] to warrant the moniker.

"The ATSE platform continuously updates 20 million fare and rule records and 1.5 million schedules with no down time, delivering online schedules, availability, itinerary pricing and low fare searches for Sabre Holdings’ global network of partner and customer companies."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
