    Interesting, Informative conversation about Hadoop and related technologies. Inspiring presentation about chucking hadoop, python, ruby, rails, Amazon EC2, google charts, wikipedia logs, and probably half a dozen other ingredients in a cauldron, stirring for two weeks and getting something coherent as a result.
