The Difference Between MySQL and Google
The ever-insightful Bernard Golden's February 2006 Open Source Newsletter compares and contrasts Internet advertising giant Google (whose product sells for pennies per unit) with the growing but unassuming MySQL UC (with a free product, of course, but also licensing fees more than a few pennies per unit). Yet for all Google's giant presence, it needs MySQL or something like MySQL to succeed. What does that mean for your organization? Bernard has a few ideas....

Turning MySQL data in latin1 to utf8 utf-8
My old CD Baby MySQL database from 1998 was filled with foreign characters and was in MySQL's default latin1 encoding. I wanted everything to be in UTF-8. (The database, the website, the MySQL client, everything.) Unfortunately, I found out I had some characters in latin1, some characters in UTF-8, some in the database as HTML equivalents (分) and some characters that were just a total mystery. Here's how I solved it all in MySQL and PHP.

Followup on Managing MySQL on Mac OS X
A couple of weeks ago, my article 'Managing MySQL on Mac OS X' was published, detailing some of the best Mac options for interacting with the popular database management system. There were some good tidbits in the comments of that article that I'd like to pull out as a followup.

MapServer Foundation kick-off
The creation of a non-profit organisation around MapServer web mapping technologies has been a dream of mine for a couple of years. No longer do you need to listen to my perennial pining about the need for an independent, non-profit, support organisation for the MapServer community. It is finally being launched with some strong momentum and promising support.

"We Own Our Own Data!" - or - Why both Google and Microsoft already know this and are TOTALLY fine with the idea.
Theres seems to be a lot of chatter as of late regarding a near call to arms to "Free Your Data!", "Don't Trust Anyone With What Belongs To You!", and various other terms that attempt to suggest that for-profit software companies are evil, untrustworthy, and dead set on stealing "your data" from you if ever you were to give them a chance. Well, I'll admit, some of them are... but not the ones you would think. Here's why.
