Open Enterprise Interview: Mike Olson, Cloudera

,----[ Quote ]
| MO: I started college at Berkeley in 1979. In 1980, I got a work-study job 
| for the Computer Systems Research Group, which produced the Berkeley Software 
| Distribution -- what most people call "Berkeley Unix". I worked for Bill Joy 
| and Bob Fabry on that project (and the guy in the next office was a kind of 
| geeky grad student named Eric Schmidt...).    
| I dropped out for a few years in 1982 and returned to Berkeley as an 
| undergrad in 1988. I got a job working for Mike Stonebraker on the Postgres 
| project, where I was one of the key developers. I got my BA in 1991, MSc in 
| 1992 and left grad school in 1993 to join Stonebraker's Postgres startup, 
| Illustra. One of the last things I did at Berkeley was to write, with Margo 
| Seltzer, an embedded database engine called Berkeley DB.

Bottling the Magic Behind Google and Facebook

| Hadoop is the open-source version of the file system and MapReduce technology 
| developed by Google. Google has used such software to rewire its entire 
| search index, making it possible for the company to run ever-faster searches 
| on cheap servers and to ask questions of its vast data stores and receive 
| coherent answers.    



Ballmer Still Searching for an Answer to Google

,----[ Quote ]
| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
