Glad to have good conditions for my visit with family! Thankful for family (with borrowed board, wetsuit and rides to/from the cliffs). Good times.

Looks like a good read!
 
Planning for Big Data

The book is out! Edited by me, this is a handbook for those interested in finding out more about what big data is, and how it can be practically used today. Topics covered include:

* The broad industry changes heralded by the big data era
* What big data is, what it means to your business, and how to startsolving data problems
* The software that makes up the Hadoop big data stack, and the majorenterprise vendors' Hadoop solutions
* The landscape of NoSQL databases and their relative merits
* How visualization plays an important part in data work* Big data in the cloud, and data marketplaces

If you are already primed on big data, this is the ideal book to hand to your manager or CIO.

Authors include +Alistair Croll, +Julie Steele, +Mike Loukides and me, +Edd Dumbill.

+O'Reilly have made the ebook free. You can download it from their site, and it'll be appearing in iTunes and Kindle shortly.

No baby carrier? That's ok, a windbreaker will do just fine.

Santa Barbara Surfacing did an excellent job on our stairs, porch and patio. They were prompt, courteous and more than fair on the pricing. Their workmen were professional and left no mess behind. I would highly recommend Santa Barbara Surfacing and will likely be contracting them for future work.
