Tell us something about your name (first, middle, last, nick, handle, etc).

In Japan, Hotchkiss means stapler, so my colleagues there called me Mr. Stapler.

How did you get interested in: computers, databases, mysql? (pick one or all of the topics)

In high school, I wanted to learn how stereos worked (this was before the days of MP3 :-), which led me to study EE/CS in college. I've spent my entire career in the the computer industry and I'm fascinated by MySQL and the OpenSource movement.

Introduction

I'm at a Boston area start-up named Tokutek, and we're developing a MySQL storage engine. I want to learn as much as possible about the needs and pain points for MySQL based applications.
