Big query is possibly the most exciting tool for big data
 
My first talk on Google Cloud Platform focusing mainly on Big Data and in particular BigQuery delivered on this occasion to the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth. I spent quite a bit of time talking through the history or research at Google in the field of Big Data and the evolution of tools in the open source community as a result. The slides include enough information to give you an idea of the flavour of the talk.

Going cloud means going multi device
 
The mobile version of Drive on the web got a big update

When you need to view a file in Google Drive from a phone or tablet that isn’t yours, you’ll likely visit the mobile version of Google Drive in the browser. Try out the much improved mobile web version of Drive that’s faster and easier to use. 

Visit http://drive.google.com/ from your mobile browser to give it a try.

I personally am not convinced on hybrid cloud in the long run, adding more legacies issues to your architecture
 
Hybrid & Other Growing Cloud Focused Trends
The 2014 State of the Cloud Report released by +RightScale revealed that enterprises typically are not fully committed to one type of cloud but instead have elements that are public, private, and/or hybrid. Most enterprises seem to be moving toward the hybrid or multi-cloud model (essentially, the first term referring to multiple clouds that are integrated and the latter one referring to ones that are not).

This is still our favorite restaurant we have been coming here for the past 7 years. The food is wonderful, the drink is superb. It is world class South African dishes. If you get a chance you must go to Serendipity at least once in your life. Rudolph and Lizel make an amazing team

We stayed over for a wedding. It was stunning, Willie and his wife were fantastic we were welcomed with a wine tasting and had a blast in one of the most gorgeous wine estates. The rooms and venue were amazing.

The service was fine. But instead of a chedda melt steak we go three minute steaks. My wife got the buffalo wings and calamari. The calamari was off and for the past 48 hours she has been violently ill. Considering the spur was packed the food was off.

So found Grumpy Cafe using my Google Local plus, was looking for a trendy Coffee bar, and although the reviews were great, I am not sure if I really enjoyed it that much. I am not from the US, so traveling here from South africa and I just found the service, which was very self service, ie clear your own table once you finish, not that great. However the Coffee was superb, the general feeling of the Cafe was fine, it was quiet so maybe if it was full it would be a different story. Would I go again, yes if someone else clears my dishes :-(. Oh and yes no laptop rule is great spent some time reading my kindle :-)
