We, at ThirdEye, are thrilled that Michael Stonebraker has been awarded the A.M. Turing Prize, computer science’s highest award. You can see the detailed article about it on the Fortune – Michael Stonebraker, serial database genius, brings home Turing Award.
Michael gracefully replied to our congratulatory email and wished us well.

I have known Michael since his Vertica days and then during our partnership with VoltDB.

In January 29, 2013, we had the pleasure and honor to host Michael Stonebraker at our Big Data Cloud meetup group.
You can see the details of the meetup here
We had blogged about the event here.

We also had the opportunity to interview Micheal during that meetup, during our Big Talk sessions:

We are sure that we will continue to see more groundbreaking inventions from him in the coming years.
We wish him the very best with his latest startup, Tamr.
