The winner of the MySQL license debacle
MySQL is walking a fine line between commercial customers and open source developers. Should MySQL push too hard, who will be the overall winner?

Programming is like Songwriting
From 1988 to 2000 I made my full-time living making music. I used to spend a huge amount of my time writing songs. Lyrics, melodies, grooves, tracks, arrangements, etc. As I get more and more into programming, I'm constantly struck with how similar it feels to songwriting. I'll name a few ways that come to mind so far, and then maybe some other musician/programmers can contribute some more to the list.

the joy of a self-joining SQL query
Ever joined a table to itself in a query? It's a cool way to look at something twice, to combine two criteria.

Let's talk about shopping carts
Let's talk about shopping carts. I think there is no such thing as a shopping cart. A shopping cart is what we call the process of putting together an order. The same code has to calculate an order-in-flux as it does a final order. A shopping cart is an order. Not "a kind of" order. Not "like an" order. A shopping cart is an order. There is no such thing as a shopping cart.

Making a Baby
Pretty soon I'm going to re-write CD Baby from scratch, to right my past wrongs, and leave a much more flexible, expandable, maintainable program to ride into the future. This journal will document the re-writing thought process, decisions, philosophies, cool tricks, and all that fun techie stuff.

PHP Security at OSCON
I will be giving three talks at OSCON this year: two sessions and a tutorial. They're all focused on PHP security in one way or another, and I'm very happy that O'Reilly is giving this topic so much attention. I'm including the descriptions below, although the exact outline of the tutorial (PHP Security) is subject to change

Inside buyer, a web service
I have recently started devoting more energy towards becoming financially literate. You may wonder, "What does financial literacy have to do with the O'Reilly audience?" Well, after spending some time playing around with the different financial web sites and reading a really interesting book, I started to contemplate a new web site (destination) and web service (APIs).

Supporting Open Source
December's SDForum meeting brought together some of the leading names in Open Source. Many of the questions asked touch on a theme that has been a long-standing concern: what about support for Open Source software? Today I'll review some of the perspectives on Open Source support, and argue that the options are better than the proprietary alternatives.
