Meetup Description

Our 2011 January meeting will feature Greg Lindahl speaking about
blekko. Location forthcoming.

blekko is a new Web-scale search engine, offering focused searching
using "slashtags", which enable you to restrict search results to the
specific sites of actual interest. We'll use some open-source
slashtags as examples. The rest of the talk will focus our
implementation of the search engine and the underlying NoSQL database
using Perl+XS, Map/Reduce done better, tuning Linux for good
performance, etc.

Greg Lindahl is CTO at blekko. He was previously a founder at
PathScale, where he was the architect of the InfiniPath low-latency
InfiniBand HCA, used to build tightly-coupled supercomputing clusters.
Prior to PathScale's founding in 2001, Greg worked on commodity Linux
clusters at HPTi, including the 1999 Forecast Systems Lab system,
which was the first time a Linux cluster won a conventional
supercomputing procurement. Greg first used Perl before the Camel Book
was written. Perl: the swiss army chainsaw of programming languages!
