Thanks, Chris DiBona for pointing out the updated letter distribution that google did. http://norvig.com/mayzner.html
I culled a corpus of 20000 words from a variety of sources, e.g., newspapers, magazines, books, etc. For each source selected, a starting place was chosen at random. In proceeding forward from this po...

Steve Yegge, who I met at an OSCON speakers' dinner this summer, wrote a great piece on Amazon's vs Google's platforms. https://plus.google.com/112678702228711889851/posts/eVeouesvaVX
Stevey's Google Platforms Rant I was at Amazon for about six and a half years, and now I've been at Google for that long. One thing that struck me…

Free wallpapers

Here is a collection of 107 wallpapers for your pleasure. Feel free to use them on any device you want. Each wallpaper is available as a 2048px high quality JPEG file. To download a photo click on it then on the options menu at the bottom.

Download the entire album

Update: Due to the popularity of this album (thank you!) I reached my bandwidth quota on Google Drive and the zip file linked below is not reachable anymore. Here is an alternative link: http://goo.gl/08TXN

You can also download this album as a single zip file in which you will find the photos in their original size (up to 24 Mpixels.) Be warned, the zip file is 500 MB: http://goo.gl/CZ1DM

You can also download the full resolution photos from my Flickr account: http://flickr.com/photos/romainguy

I hand picked these photos from my personal collection. In case you are interested, most of these images were taken with a Canon 30D, a Canon 5D Mk II and a Canon 5D Mk III. This album includes the wallpapers I use on my laptop, Nexus 7 and Nexus 4.

Enjoy!

I'm giving a talk about "Lessons Learned from Developing Apache Hadoop" at UC Irvine tomorrow.

Hadoop is quickly becoming the foundation for big data processing in
enterprises and has spread from its original web adopters (Yahoo,
Facebook, Amazon, Google, LinkedIn, Ebay, Twitter, Netflix, Alibaba) to
other large tech companies (Apple, Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, Intel, AMD,
NetApp, EMC, Cisco, Nokia, AOL), startups (DropBox, Foursquare,
StumbleUpon, Zillow,Match.com  Match.com, Rackspace), government (CIA, NSA, Booz Allen Hamilton), commercial (Sears, Walmart, Gap) and financial (JP Morgan, Mastercard). I will summarize the history of Hadoop and discuss some of the right decisions and big wins as well as some mistakes and lessons learned. For example, releasing early and often and evolving quickly in the early days forced the project to stay focused on continuous improvements that mattered to the user. On the other hand, we wanted to improve the MapReduce API, so we made a completely new one, which is an improvement but now we have to support both APIs indefinitely. I'll also discuss some of the current challenges and how we are working on them.
