Hi all,

It's been a while since I've posted to Haifux (or Linux-IL for that matter)
but I am watching the mailing list from time to time and due to personal
reasons found myself as a Haifa citizen for the past year (and probably for
a couple more years :-) ).

Somewhere in 2004 I even did a lecture on Mono, the open source .NET
implementation, if some of you recall.

Recently I've been involved with a cool open source project called Disco.

Disco is an open source Map-Reduce framework written in Erlang and Python.
It was written at Nokia's Palo Alto research center as a lightweight
framework for rapid scripting of distributed data processing tasks but grew
to become even more than that and is now even used for probabilistic
modeling, data mining, full text indexing, etc.

You can read more about Disco at http://discoproject.org

Would a lecture on Map-Reduce in general and specifically Disco would
interest people?

If so, I'm more than willing to give the lecture and show some examples.
