Music Discovery: Crate-diggers vs Radio Listeners →
mirchi: Looking at how people discover music, people seem to fall into one of two broad categories. (…) These two groups aren’t mutually exclusive. Crate-digging is very much a lean-forward media experience while radio listening is lean-back. If I have a few free hours on the weekend, I may want to spend some time looking for new music.

Someone Different: Encouraging Twitter Serendipity →
I made a very raw cut of an idea that’s been percolating for a while. The idea is to randomly follow a few people for a month or so, then rotate to a few different people, and so on.

At SimpleGeo our documentation is a crucial part of our business. Without docs, our developers would have no idea how to use our service.

When to Use HBase →
From Cloudera’s HBase Do’s and Don’ts: If your application has a variable schema where each row is slightly different, then you should look at HBase. As an example, doing a modeling exercise using a standard relational schema; When you can’t add columns fast enough and most of them are NULL in each row, you should consider HBase. If you find that your data is stored in collections, for...
