Mike Olson: Sleepy cat no more

Mike Olson sold his company to Oracle. Now he's going for Round II.

Mike Olson is on the entrepreneurial prowl again. The co-founder of Sleepycat, who sold his company to Oracle and recently left Oracle for a brief stint as a relaxed person, is back in action.

I talked a day ago with a company that has talked to Mike about an executive role, and told them what I'll tell anyone who asks:

Hire him. Immediately. He's smart, pragmatic, and a huge asset to anyone lucky enough to interest him.

Welcome back, Mike. I won't say we've missed you, because you never really left, but welcome back all the same. It will be fun to see where you land. Round II, coming up.
