All right, you are about to finally meet with the candidate face to face. And if you're using Skype or Google Hangouts please turn on your camera and ask the candidate to do the same. For the interview here are a few notes and reminders:

Ice-breaking is important, and so is being nice. There's high probability that the candidates will be nervous when the interview starts. So, the first step is to make them feel comfortable. This is good for them and for you too. If they feel comfortable, …

…I'm interested in doing that, but in practice, they never seem worth the effort. I used to use Skype; although there's no doubt Skype sucks in some ways, virtually everybody has it, and it got the job done just fine.

I had to opportunity to speak with him via Skype the other day. Here's what he had to say.

Tom: Would you say that Oracle is a worthy custodian of MySQL?

Morgan: When you phrase it like that you sort of open the door for one to nitpick. I certainly don't think that Oracle has done any worse than anyone else to date.
