Various quick notes

As you might imagine, there are a lot of blog posts I’d like to write I never seem to get around to, or things I’d like to comment on that I don’t want to bother ever writing a full post about. In some cases I just tweet a comment or link and leave it at that.

And it’s not going to get any better. Next week = the oft-postponed elder care trip. Then I’m back for a short week. Then I’m off on my quarterly visit to the SF area. Soon thereafter I’ve have a lot to do in connection with Enzee Universe. And at that point another month will have gone by.


I ‘m beginning to make a habit of asking vendors for a postable version of their slide decks. Sybase IQ is another example.

    Sorry — fixed!

    But warning: They’re slow to download. It’s a >12 meg PDF.

    You should take a look at Bigsheets and Datameer, it’s pretty interesting how they can translate a excel-like interface and formulas to run against pedabytes of data.

    Also note that IBM along with the bigsheets announcement seems to now be supporting their own hadoop distro. Having IBM in the support game is going to make a big difference to fortune 500 style hadoop customers
