 Rumor has it that if we finish up early enough tomorrow night, we

 Featured Presentation:  Pratik Dave:  "Map/Reduce"

 On December 15 we look forward to Pratik Dave's first presentation at
 Perl Seminar NY.  Pratik has provided this description of his talk:

 "Map/Reduce is a simple technique for performing calculations on
 arbitrarily sized (read: enormous) data-sets by applying the
 functional programming 'map' and 'reduce' primitives in parallel
 across  smaller and smaller subsets of the data. Created based on the
 functionality discussed in a seminal paper on the topic published by
 Google engineers (http://labs.google.com/papers/mapreduce.html),
 an open source project named Apache Hadoop (http://hadoop.apache.org/
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadoop) provides
 the scaffolding to perform map-reduce calculations on your commodity
 hardware."

 "In this talk I'll introduce the map/reduce concept, work
 through its application to algorithms you probably perform daily, and
 demonstrate how to write a simple (yet powerful) Hadoop job using
 Perl."
