Yes, what about it? From a first sight, it may look like I didn’t even start my summer project. This is far from true, and please let me explain.
Cheesy Excuse: I’ve been busy…
Better (?) Excuse: I’ve done some research in the area and I have multiple research projects involving, in one form or the other, MapReduce and Hadoop. I felt like my time was better spent on thinking on my open questions, rather than reading papers that were somewhat unrelated to my actual interests regarding MapReduce/Hadoop (theory, algorithms, models of computation, although I’ll pretty soon add something more system-related).
In the end, I want to quote a post by Metoo on his great blog:
“We are still far from developing a theory of algorithms for it [MapReduce, editor's note], but some good examples are emerging.”
I agree with the first part of the sentence, but I am still not sure about the second part. We’ll see.
