Having watched almost 20 hours of STRATA and related talks, I propose the following drinking game for STRATA attendees:
- Every time Hadoop is mentioned, take a sip (trust me, you’ll go through a bottle in no time)
- Every time the words “web-scale”, “tera-scale” or, really, <anything>-scale are mentioned, drink a shot
- For every 1000 cores involved in computation, drink a shot
- For every terabyte per hour, drink a shot
- For every exabyte, finish the bottle.
- Drink a number of shots proportional to the square of the number of big-data technologies employed in a single system. For example: “We run Mahout over data stored in HBase running on a Hadoop cluster, and indexed in SOLR, while computing statistics using Hive”
- Techologies employed = 5
- Shots to be drunk = 25
- If the speaker builds custom, one-off hardware to run big data jobs, offer THEM the bottle. They’ll need it.
- If the speaker has designed a custom programming language to do this work, buy them a single-malt in admiration of their bravery. If the language is based on LISP or SmallTalk, ask them who their drug dealer is and whether you can get some of whatever they’re smoking.
Instead of posting “this is a test”, I’d rather post a nice article about databases.
Yes I know you are really happy with your “persistent” Key Value store. But did anybody notice hstore that comes along Postgresql. I find Postgresql to be a really great RDBMS that has been ignored all the time. It even has some great publisher/subscriber system as well (or LISTEN/NOTIFY in…
Drilling deeper into the mechanics of neuro-social machinery…
Words in a large number of languages can be cleanly clustered along a few pricipal axes — good/bad, calm/exited, and open/closed (free/not free).
This hints that there may be a fundamental dimension to evolution of language, something embedded in the hardware of our minds that lies at the very bottom of the whole rich linguistic field.
Altruistic punishment…”means that individuals punish, although the punishment is costly for them and yields no material gain.”
