Scale up!

These two open source projects seem awesome: Hypertable and Hadoop. Both inspired in most of Google's research papers.

I currently had a go with MogileFS - but not sure how it compares with Haddop's distritued file system. And how does Gearman compare with the Reduce functionality of Hadoop?

Hopefully will find the time to play with these technologies :)

Hopefully, this patch will be applied in the original too, since it's definetly a feature most users would want.


Tropecei no link para o esboço do livro do Martin Fowler sobre DSLs nesta entrevista sobre DSL com Phillip Calçado (

Achei curioso os exemplos estarem em C#. Torço para o Ayende conseguir lançar um livro antes em boo! :)

Urchin >> Machine Learning!

Google made available Urchin. It's an interesting move to enable enterprises do some data crunching... :)

I'll try get my hands on the beta.
