Yes, I did think that this (MongoDB) would be the best to prototype stuff with. Any heavy lifting of datasets can always be done on a cluster if we get that far. Plus, I think there is a fair amount of knowledge in the group of the MongoDB platform.
It will become more apparent which platform(s) we use once we have the theme for the event set and know what datasets we will be using.

Also MongoDB is easy to install and it's got MapReduce if we want alternatives.
