Big Brown Bear Comes Alive

rmccaughan:

The other day Big Brown Bear came to life. Son was delighted to discover that he was going to be joining us in the day’s activities, instead of lying in the cot alone until nap-time as he usually does.

He was rather perplexed, however, when Big Brown Bear got his trousers put on to go for…

My wife turned 30 today. She’s rather amazing. I rebooted this post from her tumblog to show just how awesome she is.

Jack Brabham has died today aged 88. He was the only driver in the history of F1 to have won a world championship racing his own cars. He was the main reason why Bruce McLaren made it to Formula 1 to race in Cooper so there’s a lot we have to thank to Sir Jack.
May your soul rest in peace, Sir.

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well

Psalms 139 v13-14

Big Data lessons from Netflix

nosql:

Phil Simon (Wired) covers some details of the Netflix’s “Big Data Platform as a Service @ Netlix” (alternatively titled “Watching Pigs Fly with the Netflix Hadoop Toolkit”):

At Netflix, comparing the hues of similar pictures isn’t a one-time experi­ment conducted by an employee with far too much time on his hands. It’s a regular occurrence. Netflix recognizes that there is tremendous potential value in these discoveries. To that end, the company has created the tools to unlock that value. At the Hadoop Summit, Magnusson and Smith talked about how data on titles, colors, and covers helps Netflix in many ways. For one, analyz­ing colors allows the company to measure the distance between customers. It can also determine, in Smith’s words, the “average color of titles for each customer in a 216-degree vector over the last N days.”

While quite fascinating, I’m wondering how one could prove the value of such details. There’s no way you can run an A/B test or a predictive model or a historic model analysis.
