Groove with BluesMix at the Welcome Reception

eBluesMixExerpt from the official daily newspaper from Oracle Magazine and Profit. By Bobbie Hartman.

The party starts at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Oracle OpenWorld Welcome Reception. Head on over to the Howard Street Tent and Yerba Buena Gardens, and enjoy the food, spirits, and good company. While you're there, you won't want to miss the eclectic blend of blues and funk provided by BluesMix, a London-based band led by Oracle's own Robert Fleming.

Fleming, whose day job is vice president of Marketing Campaigns at Oracle, is quite comfortable combining a full-time career with his musical pursuits. "I think it's important to have some kind of passion outside of work," he muses. "For me, it just happens to be music. So when other people at Oracle enjoy their nonwork time of having dinner or playing golf, I'm at a club, playing my music."

If you want to hear more of BluesMix, you can catch the group again tomorrow night at Biscuits & Blues, at the corner of Mason and Geary in San Francisco.

Hi, Why Oracle don't put some result on with "Oracle Exadata V2" new "Database Machine"? I really want to compare the Price/Performance/Floor Space/Cooling air/Energy of this type of machine X others Vendors... Side by side it's a great Idea to Justify some investment!! There's some options of "Flash" technology emerging, like HP/Fusio-IO, Dell/Ramsan (PCI-e and SAN - Ramsan 20/620/6200), and already has some results that prove their values, but it's more like some "Make yourself" than a Product... Please, don't wait a lot!!!
