would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.

Kieli olisi tuttu ja heinäkuun jälkeen varmasti melko hyvin hallussakin. Mietin kuitenkin, jääkö minulta jotakin muuta näkemättä kun näen vain Espanjan. Maailmassa on miljoonia...

If you happen to be interested in the
technologies that enable advanced business analytics, like I am, the last year
has been an interesting one. A lot is happening, on all levels of the tech
stack from raw infrastructure to cloud platforms and to functional
applications. As Hadoop has really caught on and is now a building block for even
conservative corporations, several of its weaknesses are also beginning to be
tackled. From my point of view, the most severe has been the terrible
