    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.

    (I'm biased) but I thought it was a lot of fun - awesome lightning talks, smart people and good discussions. The code from my talk is here: http://github.com/datawrangling/trendingtopics/tree/experimental

    More will be posted soon on datawrangling.com and as a guest post on http://www.cloudera.com/blog/

    If anyone wants to build PR for their company consider offering financial support for that Creative Commons Hadoop based crawl I mentioned: OpenRelevance http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/OpenRelevance

    Thanks again to Josh for organizing and everyone who braved the rain & traffic. If anyone wants to team up on a hack, or needs some quick consulting on a data crunching problem - drop me an email: [masked]
