Yahoo gets behind Hadoop

Hadoop, the (recent) Apache implementation of MapReduce in Java, has seen its developer Doug Cutting hired by Yahoo.

The funny thing is that the first time I read about MapReduce was in a (very interesting) paper titled "Why functional programming matters" which was written in .... 1984!

It's not always the lates technology that brings advancement: good use of existing technology can do a lot too. Ever heard of Ajax? ;-)
