March MySQL Meetup - No Video

I'm sorry to report that the video of the last Boston MySQL meetup isn't going to see the light of day. The meetup was good, ~20 in attendance to listen to a presentation on MySQL cluster that I put together and have a discussion about the technology.

I spent some time fiddling with the video we shot, but the fact that we had no microphone or tripod, and were in a huge auditorium at MIT where the camera had to be set at the back to capture the slides on the mega-screen all add up to a dark video with unacceptable (many times inaudible) audio. There are chunks of time where the video is almost pure black while hearing comments from attendees. Next time will be better.

As always, thanks to MySQL AB for pizza and soda. Also to the group member who scrambled to find a new room when the room we were supposed to use was double-booked.
