I have some presentations coming up (all on October Thursdays)

On Thursday, October 15, and two different times (10:00 am and 1:00 pm Eastern time), I’ll be giving a webinar for Aster Data on MapReduce. The content is very much work in progress, but it definitely will:

Then, on the evening of Thursday, October 22, there’s something called the Boston Big Data Summit, in Waltham, where “Big Data” evidently is to be construed as anything from a few terabytes on up.  (Things are smaller in the Northeast than in California …) It’s being put together by Amrith Kumar (who I don’t really know) and Bob Zurek (who everybody knows). This is the inaguaral meeting. It seems I’m both giving the keynote and running the subsequent panel, one of whose participants will be Ellen Rubin.

Rather than prepare a slide deck,’ll just throw together some notes and talk from those, the old-fashioned way. I gather the audience will be mainly vendors.  If somebody tells me in time whether to expect more marketing or more technical folks, I’ll slant my presentation accordingly.

One ostensible theme for the night is cloud computing, but I don’t plan to stay focused in that area; it might be hard to spend 45 minutes on cloud computing without sounding like the software salesman who keeps repeating how good it’s going to be.
