New Oracle ACE Director

A few days ago Oracle offered me a position of Oracle ACE Director, and I accepted it. Thanks Oracle. I'm glad to see that Oracle has evaluated my activities and we can have a good relationships each other. Oracle has been great for MySQL so far and I'd be happy to keep contributions.

Since I live in Tokyo and my native language is Japanese, I usually do community activities in Japanese (speaking at conferences in Tokyo, publishing books written in Japanese, etc). I'd like to do more in English, and my employer DeNA thankfully supports it. Right now it's confirmed that I'll speak at OSCON.Data in July, and at Oracle Open World in October. Personally I haven't traveled to Europe for years so it's great if I have an opportunity to speak at MySQL/Linux conferences in Europe.
