Great article +Travis Oliphant, and it raises a question for me. A few months ago I settled on Disco Project (http://discoproject.org/) for a Python-friendly distributed MapReduce framework for my dissertation project. Unfortunately, it seems Disco is truly dead - there hasn't been a release in a year and a half and there are several pull requests that are sitting there languishing...
