HadoopDB is a hybrid of parallel database and MapReduce technologies. It approaches parallel databases in performance and efficiency, yet still yields the scalability, fault tolerance, and flexibility of MapReduce systems.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has produced a working draft that defines various aspects of cloud computing, which may finally put a lid on the dubious claims put out by many vendors.
Asterisk, a somewhat resource consuming application is considered not fitting for Amazon EC2 structures. This talk will discuss the various issues related to creating dynamically extending platforms, using Asterisk, Amazon EC2, Amazon S3 and some web mesh-ups.

Yahoo! and Cloudera have worked together to produce a couple of training videos for Pig. There is Introduction to Pig, a 50 minute talk on Pig, including copious examples of writing Pig Latin scripts, an overview of how Pig works, and a discussion of the advantages of Pig versus other Hadoop interfaces
Strongly disagree with arguments and "study" part of it. Search McKinsey got it wrong in google. He oversaw private clouds, which makes all argument short-sighted. Given that with recent Ubuntu Server one can deploy your own cloud and mix and match with amazon EC2, thus leading to really scalable architecture. I think enterprise just don't have personnel for it. - post by alex_mikhalev
Pecora and Carroll discovered that one can feed part of the state of one Lorenz system into a second Lorenz system, and the second Lorenz system will exponentially converge to the same state as the first system, even if the synchronizing signal is corrupted with noise(!). It's like some kind of psueodrandom, chaotic "phase locked loop"—very exciting
