Given the current state of the economy, here's a quick job plug for anyone interested and qualified.

At the Drizzle Developer Day on Friday, I got to meet Adrian Otto from Rackspace. Rackspace has a cloud offering (think Aamazon EC2) that's called Mosso and is willing to employ full time developers who spend all their time working on Drizzle.

Here's what he sent to the mailing list.

I was speaking with Eric Day at the developer conference, and I mentioned that Rackspace is wiling to employ full time developers for the specific purpose of furthering the Drizzle project's mission. He suggested that I email you on this list becuase he expected there would be interest in this offer. If you work on the project now part time, and want to make it a full time job working exclusively on the Drizzle project, let me know. The Rackspcae Cloud believes in open source, and we want to do our part to make Drizzle a wild success.

Talking with him a bit, the rationale is simple: Rackspace wants to offer the best cloud resources they can. Part of that means having infrastructure that their customers need and works well. They're betting the Drizzle is part of their future, and hiring a few people to work on it makes that future a reality sooner than later.

It looks like Mark Callaghan (Google) likes the idea too, as does Don MacAskill (SmugMug).

Anyway, ping me if you're interested and I'll put you in touch.
