You interview Sun Microsystems CEO about MySQL

I’ll be interviewing Jonathan Schwartz, Sun Microsystems CEO, this morning sometime between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.

I’ll be using Qik on my cell phone instead of a professional camera. Why? Because then you can join in. See, if you are watching my live stream and you leave a comment I see that on my phone WHILE I’m filming. All of this live. So, I can bring you into the conversation in a way that other video systems just can’t do.

So, watch my Twitter account (I’ll send a Twitter message as soon as the Interview starts). There is a possibility it won’t work, though, because I might not be able to get a good cell phone connection at Sun’s headquarters. If that happens I’ll fall back to an audio interview, which, unfortunately won’t be interactive in this way.

What’s on the agenda? Sun’s acquisition of MySQL.

UPDATE: TechMeme has more on this morning’s news and I’ll have an interview up shortly. The Qik one didn’t work out as planned cause the wireless kept having troubles and also because Qik was upgrading its servers right in the middle of our interview.

  1. ask him why his employee, specialized in mobile Java, brutally taken away from me audio recorder when I was recording podcast and stopped interview – just when I mentioned mobile Flash and .NET ?

    ask him why Google has ignored JSR and Java standards and used their own type of Java ? (because Sun license fees are very high and Sun is in practice damaging open source, not supporting it)

    But it doesn’t require you to register, so it’s got that going for it…

  5. It looks like it was just a loss of network responsiveness; sometimes this happens, and we’re a bit at the mercy of the 3G network. We’ve learned some things about detecting when this happens, though, and the next release will include what I’m calling the “Scoble check” to smooth things out a bit more :)
