No more Tom Kyte

Please don’t hesitate to go and see Tom Kyte if you have the chance, but I’m done. I just watched another Tom Kyte show and I still think he’s brilliant, but it’s not for me. It wears me out. I just can’t handle someone going on for 50 minutes without hardly taking any breath. The information density is so high you have to pay attention every second, leaving you bedazzled after the show: what did I actually learn in detail? The level of the knowledge is suitable for DBA’s from junior to senior (whatever that may be), which draws a big crowd (and it should), but I’ll stick with the slides from now on.
