> Hi again, another update.

> Have worked out the details on food and drinks.
> Yahoo! will be paying for a light lunch "sandwich, fruit, drink and
> crisps (meat and veggie options available)" and ~70 beer (and some non
> alcoholic options.
> Skills matter (the venue) will sponsor us with 50 beers.

> I'd still like to find someone else to present and need some help with
> this. Joost couldn't do it unfortunately.
> Ideally I'd like to see some talks/lightning on the many projects that
> use hadoop: HBase, Mahout, Pig, Hive, Cascading etc.
>
> Tim Sell (intern at last.fm) have promised to do a lightning talk on  
> his
> project: postgresql -> hbase replication.
> Miles Osborne (see below) will do a lightning talk on how they're  
> using
> hadoop and nutch in their research.

> I'll update the event description with mention of food/drinks and send

> Any other pr would be great to fill the last slots, might write
> something on the last.fm blog about it.
>
> Ideas for panel topics? Future direction for hadoop?
>
> Updated the schedule a bit. The last slots could be compressed to  
> fit in
> another presentation (and Last.fm doesn't have to present this time if
> another good speaker steps forward).
> We'll get thrown out of the venue at 17.00.
