Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

Yahoo! Pig

[ #33118 ]
Yahoo! has just announced Research Project: Pig, which is a huge pig. Oh no wait, that's just the logo. Pig itself is "infrastructure to support ad-hoc analysis of very large data sets" and is a query language that runs on top of Hadoop, rather like Google's Sawzall. It's interesting how new minilanguages are the way to do this - see some example code and analysis over at Geeking With Greg.
