Jimmy Lin: MapReduce

Jimmy Lin (iSchool) gave a great talk at STScI as part of the Engineering Colloquium on 2008-11-21.
He gave a very compelling reason why science and astronomy with it, should consider MapReduce.

I enjoyed his talk very much and I will try to see if there is a common ground for a collaboration that might help us tackle some of the data reduction pipeline problems we are facing.
