This is the rescheduled Hadoop meeting, as promised.

Hadoop is an open-source MapReduce framework inspired by Google's MapReduce
and Google File System (GFS) papers. It's used to process "Big Data"
(petabytes) by distributing work across tens, hundreds, or thousands of nodes
in a cluster. Hadoop is used by Google, eBay, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!,
Adobe, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Intel, Tynt, and many other notable shops with
Big Data processing requirements.

About the Presenter:

Bryan Sant is a high school dropout who's been writing software professionally
since the ripe age of 15. He's worked with a lot of software that manipulates
Big Data for various companies. Bryan is currently working with the Canadians
to take over the world. Occasionally Bryan gets paid to hurt people in front
of large crowds.

See you all there!
