We live in a unique time when a number technologies and trends have finally come together. I'm talking about the big data overload, cloud computing, machine learning and corporation-backed open source initiatives. I predict that all this will soon result in a revolution... a shift in the way we live perhaps even as profound as the one brought on by the birth of the Internet. I'm thrilled to watch that unfold. I have a chance of doing so by working at a company which is part of this trend (the second one in a row by now) and will use this blog to share some of the things I have learned so far. I suspect most of it will be technical and having to do with emerging technologies such as Hadoop, Lucene, or NoSQL. Maybe some of it will be more philosophical... I don't know. Anyway, thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy what you find here!
