Follow Friday

I know this is a Twitter tradition and I know it is just a tad early, but here is my version of Follow Friday.

First up, Enrique Aviles. I met Mr. Aviles at Tanel Põder's visit back in January in Tampa. We had corresponded a bit prior via Twitter. For the longest time, I read his Twitter handle as "Evil Les 94," I hope that's not me projecting. Super nice guy and apparently has some fun horror stories he promises to share.

Next up, Don Seiler. Don and I have been verbal sparring partners on Twitter for a couple of years now. We appear to have a similar sense of humor, smart-ass. That might be a company-wide trait at Pythian, I seem to encounter a lot of smart-asses from that particular organization. :)

Finally, Lisa Dobson. My first introduction to Mrs. Dobson was through Tom Kyte's blog a few years ago. Since I can't seem to find the exact post that I think I remember, I link to this one where Mr. Kyte talks about introducing her at her presentation for Newbie DBAs.

Now, I'm not one to spread rumors, so don't mention this to anyone, but rumor has it, she "bitch slapped" Tom Kyte at some past event. This is wholly unsubstantiated, so don't hold me to it.

You may see a trend in my Follow Friday suggestions, you may not. If you do, go here, all proceeds go to katezilla (well, technically, to us, her parents, to offset her costs. Though she is a girl and girls are supposed to cost more...). :p

Good thing I left Pythian and can raise the Smart ass quotient somewhere else.
