    Very interesting. As a newcomer to NoSQL and BigData is was very useful to get an overview of the different flavours of NoSQL database. Also nice to see that people are starting to think about the environmental impact of cloud computing and, more importantly, doing something about it!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
