Next week, I'll be attending a Sun Microsystems "Hatchery" event talking to startups in New York so I'll be in NYC Monday and Tuesday (Feb 2/3). Wednesday I'll Amtrak it to Boston where I'll meet the Boston MySQL Meetup and talk about MySQL 5.1's Event Scheduler. I'll then travel to Providence. I don't have any meetings scheduled for Providence but I'll work from a friend's house and come back on a cheap flight to Montreal the Monday after.
Will you be in any of these areas? Do you want to meet up? I have no problems ducking out during the day to meet any developer, mysql user, customer or dba. Just let me know on this blog how to get in touch with you or drop me an email to dups -at- sun -dot- com.
Now the cool part is that I will be trying my very best to be as environmentally friendly as possible on these travels so I have elected to take the 12 hour+ journey to New York City from Montreal by train. As I understand it my former colleague Morgan Tocker did it a while back and am hoping it will be somewhat relaxing and enjoyable (though I understand the border crossing is a pain). On the other hand, I get to walk downtown in Montreal, get on the train all relaxed, work on stuff on the computer in peace for the day, get out at Penn Station and walk to the hotel near the Sun office.
