    I find it very strange that a Google Cloud presentation is given at Google's facility by non Google employees, wearing Google shirts...

    That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
    When he himself might his Quietus make
    With a bare Bodkin? Who would Fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscovered Country, from whose bourn
    No Traveller returns, Puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those ills we have,
    Than fly to others that we know not of.
    Thus Conscience does make Cowards of us all,
    And thus the Native hue of Resolution
    Is sicklied o'er, with the pale cast of Thought,
    And enterprises of great pitch and moment,
    With this regard their Currents turn awry,
    And lose the name of Action. Soft you now,
    The fair Ophelia? Nymph, in thy Orisons
    Be all my sins remembered.

    o be, or not to be, that is the question:
    Whether 'tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
    The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
    Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
    No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
    The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
    That Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
    To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there's the rub,
    For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
    When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
    Must give us pause. There's the respect
    That makes Calamity of so long life:
    For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time,
    The Oppressor's wrong, the proud man's Contumely,
    The pangs of despised Love, the Law’s delay,
    The insolence of Office, and the Spurns

    The[masked] startup who developed x ( there are more than 10 but less than 99) directional access searches into a big data whatever .. did not look at the market and when they did discovered there was no market and equally was a threshold technology 3-4 years before its time ( I own the patents if anyone is interested in having another bash at this technology.. with me on board) The CEO of the directional access search technology into a Big Data whatever , successfully raised finance by walking into VC meetings with nothing else than a Rubic cube and mimicking Hamlet . I am sure even non Anglo Saxons can see how to turn this sililoquy into something appropriate to big data.

    In[masked] an Israeli startup developed "directional access searches" . Think Rubic Cube .. there are ? diectopnal access points into a Big Data call it what you want but asume that it is the "cube" in the center of direction access browzers . Any one know how many direct access points there are into such a defined Big Data whatever ( cummulative cluster if you want) The first person to tell me how many gets a free brunch for two at Benedicts ( soory if you keep kosher) . This type of technology will never date and the reliance on hardware and related hardware software will never keep up with the multiple expansion of Big Data sizes. @Howard Cooper this type of search into Big Data would solve the issue of bad clusters unless the data itself was actually bulshit and written in Funigalore ( the neologistic language create by the South African Mining Industry to help 16 different languages to communicate with each other) .
