i could not agree more. i want to be able to store, mine, and use my own data with reasonable performance and tools.
democratization of BI, remember.

summary of the ACL shows, including Pearl Jam sets. awesome.
another must read piece from Ryan. as usual.
good work on git and its capabilities
a look at Raindrop and Wave. i'll have more on them shortly, but i think we need to think more broadly to understand where collaboration is going.
Doug Cutting on a format for tackling big data
interesting take on diversity as a strength, rather than weakness, of the Linux community
