Running Lean Book Promo
We live in an age of unparalleled opportunity for innovation. We're building more products than ever before, but most of them fail—not because we can't complete what we set out to build, but because we waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product. What we need is a systematic process for quickly vetting product ideas and raising our odds of success. That's the promise of Running Lean. In this inspiring book, Ash Maurya takes you through an exacting strategy for achieving a "product/market fit" for your fledgling venture, based on his own experience in building a wide array of products from high-tech to no-tech. Throughout, he builds on the ideas and concepts of several innovative methodologies, including the Lean Startup, Customer Development, and bootstrapping.

OSCON 2012: Ross Turk, "Ceph: The Future of Storage"
The quickest way to get a proprietary storage vendor to change the subject is to ask them what they think of Ceph. What makes them so uncomfortable? Ceph provides object storage, block storage, and a distributed file system -- in a single storage platform -- for free. Ceph runs on commodity hardware, allowing you to power your storage with the best technology available. Ceph's powerful distributed block device allows you to scale cloud platforms without limitation, and its object store is compatible with applications written for S3 or Swift. Ceph has been designed with no single point of failure and intelligent nodes that are self-managing and self-healing. It's time to throw away all the old rules and start a new era of free storage solutions. You can pay for expensive and limited proprietary products. Or you can use Ceph and invest that money in your business instead. Ross Turk Inktank Ross Turk is responsible for building a strategic relationship with users, contributors, and the open source community. Ross brings more than 15 years of experience creating software, managing complex IT systems, and helping companies understand and serve developers. Before joining Inktank, Ross managed developer communities for Talend, Alcatel-Lucent and SourceForge.net, the world's largest open source community.

Velocity 2012: Mike Christian, "Frying Squirrels and Unspun Gyros"
There is a widespread belief in our industry that our data-centers are supremely reliable, capable of providing us true five-9s service, and that by hosting our platforms in these expensive massively redundant locations, we will be safe from all ills. As a result, business continuity planning is often approached from a classic DR "Airplane Into Building" perspective, where insufficient thought, energy, planning, and practice is put into a solution never expected to be used. The truth is that data-centers DO fail, sometimes for the oddest of reasons. This is not a knock against the infrastructure designers of our industry, who have created some of the most efficient, redundant, and innovative buildings in history; it is merely a statement of fact. As redundancy is added, complexity increases, adding more links to a system at the mercy of the weakest. Something as simple as a border router failure can effectively knock an entire building of compute offline, regardless of how many generators it has. By starting under the assumption that a particular data-center WILL fail at some point, it becomes significantly easier to build platforms that can be quickly and transparently shifted from location to location. Where designing for the unthinkable leads to poorly thought out solutions, designing for the every-day leads to useable and indeed useful tooling. Highly available internet platforms are not nearly as technically difficult as they are culturally difficult. I'll interleave a history of massive outages during the last decade with proven recovery solutions and strategies, with the hope of swaying our collective industry from a disaster insurance approach to a truly always-on philosophy. This talk is loosely based on Chapter 17 of O'Reilly's Web Operations, by the same author/speaker. Mike Christian Yahoo! Mike has spent the last 8 years building highly available systems for Yahoo!, from global replication of petabyte data sets, to massively distributed CDN and traffic routing mechanisms dispersed to points throughout the world. Prior to that, he spent 9 years building interactive television systems at Oracle and Thirdspace, wrestling bus sized parallel supercomputing systems and building fast lightweight DVR client applications. He particularly enjoys solving unsolvable problems.

O'Reilly Webcast: MongoDB Schema Design: How to Think Non-Relational
One of the challenges that comes with moving to MongoDB is figuring how to best model your data. While most developers have internalized the rules of thumb for designing schemas for RDBMSs, these rules don't always apply to MongoDB. The simple fact that documents can represent rich, schema-free data structures means that we have a lot of viable alternatives to the standard, normalized, relational model. Not only that, MongoDB has several unique features, such as atomic updates and indexed array keys, that greatly influence the kinds of schemas that make sense. Understandably, this begets good questions: -Are foreign keys permissible, or is it better to represent one-to-many relations within a single document? -Are join tables necessary, or is there another technique for building out many-to-many relationships? -What level of denormalization is appropriate? -How do my data modeling decisions affect the efficiency of updates and queries? In this webcast, we'll answer these questions and more, provide a number of data modeling rules of thumb, and discuss the tradeoffs of various data modeling strategies. About Jared Rosoff: Jared is the Director of Product Marketing and Technical Alliances at 10gen. Before joining 10gen, Jared ran Product Development at Yottaa where he developed a real-time analytics engine on top of MongoDB and Ruby on Rails. Produced by: Yasmina Greco

Jeremy Howard - From Predictive Modelling to Optimization: The Next Frontier
In "The Evolution of Data Products", O'Reilly Media's Mike Loukides notes: "the question of how we take the next step — where data recedes into the background — is surprisingly tough. Do we want products that deliver data? Or do we want products that deliver results based on data? We're evolving toward the latter, though we're not there yet." In this talk from Strata CA 12, Jeremy Howard shows why taking this step is tough, and he lays out what needs to be done to deliver results based on data. He draws on his experience building Optimal Decisions Group, where he developed a new approach to insurance pricing that focused on delivering results (i.e.: determine the optimal price for a customer) instead of delivering data (i.e. calculating a customer's risk, which had been the standard approach used by actuaries previously). Jeremy Howard, Margit Zwemer and Mike Loukides further explore data products in their in-depth report, "Designing great data products."

OSCON 2012: Tim O'Reilly, "The Clothesline Paradox and the Sharing Economy"
Open source software was one of the earliest successful examples of a sharing economy that has had huge economic impact. But as alternative energy advocate Steve Baer once noted, ecosystem services are often ignored in economic analysis: when you put your clothes in the dryer, the energy you use is measured and counted, but when you hang them on the line, they disappear from the measured economy. In this talk, I explore how various sharing economies are directly and indirectly monetized, and ruminate on their future. Tim O'Reilly O'Reilly Media, Inc.

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'" -Isaac Asimov This is a talk about the wonderful things that happen when you chase down anomalies in your data. When an experiment produces counterintuitive results, or a lovely relationship in your data is spoiled by outliers, a natural tendency is to toss the result aside and try again. But when you take the time to truly understand anomalous results, often one of two things happens: either you destroy your hypothesis, or you make it bulletproof.

Strata 2012: Ben Goldacre "The Information Architecture of Medicine is Broken"
I am a doctor and a data geek. I worry that data geeks are too easily seduced by the glamour of laboratory science and forget about clinics. Randomised controlled trials are the best tool we have in medicine for finding out if a treatment works or not. Lots of trials are done. Unfortunately, the results of these trials can go missing in action after they are completed. Missing data is always a challenge: but we also know that "negative results" are more likely to go missing. This means we have a biased sample, overestimating the benefits of treatments. To prevent all this happening, people have set up registers of trial protocols, to be completed before trials begin. These have not been correctly used, and they are not matched to published trials, which show up what data has been left unpublished. I will describe a small project to fix this, illustrate how that can lead on to fixing other similar problems in medicine, and make a cry for help. Ben Goldacre Bad Science Ben is a best-selling author, broadcaster, medical doctor and academic who specialises in unpicking dodgy scientific claims from drug companies, newspapers, government reports, PR people and quacks.

The expected massive growth of connected device, appliance and sensor markets in the coming years -- often called 'The Internet of Things' -- will need a more rich concept of 'open data' than is currently common. When data is generated through activities of people doing things inside their homes and outside in public in their cities, the question of who owns the data becomes almost irrelevant next to the questions of who has access to the data, what do they do with it, and how do citizens manage and make sense of their data while retaining the 'openness' that we've seen drive creativity and business on the web over the last few years.

Tim Estes: Strata Conference + Hadoop World Keynote
Bringing the 'So What' to Big Data The onset of the Big Data phenomenon has created a unique opportunity to improve the human condition, but the challenge ahead of us is to move beyond Big Data infrastructure to real, applied, and prioritized comprehension that is morally and practically useful. This requires redirecting our collective energies toward new algorithms, more distributed systems, and purer software architectures that more optimally exploit the infrastructure to answer questions of great social and personal value. Technologies that close the "Understanding Gap" can make great strides to prevent evil, reduce suffering, and create more actualized human potential. This pursuit is more than an opportunity- it is a key responsibility for the technology community today and through at least the next decade. http://strataconf.com/stratany2012/public/schedule/detail/26300

George Dyson keynote Strata Conference London 2012 "The First 5 Kilobytes are the Hardest"
http://strataconf.com/strataeu/public/schedule/detail/26588 Evolution in the digital universe has been driven, since the beginning, partly by improvements in code and partly by improvements in machines. Alan Turing's one-dimensional model of universal computation of 1936 led directly to John von Neumann's 5-kilobyte, two-dimensional implementation of 1946. The resulting address matrix, still in place after sixty years, is how the machines know where to find the code, and how the code knows where to find the machines. Mapping real-world correspondence to data structures populating a storage matrix currently expanding by some 5 trillion bits per second is the challenge that brings us here. George Dyson George Dyson is a historian of technology whose interests have included the development (and redevelopment) of the Aleut kayak (Baidarka, 1986), the evolution of digital computing and telecommunications (Darwin Among the Machines, 1997), and a path not taken into space (Project Orion, 2002). His latest book, Turing's Cathedral: The origins of the digital universe, illuminates the transition from numbers that mean things to numbers that do things in the aftermath of World War II.

Where 2012, Will Wright, "Gaming Reality"
Our conception of modern interactive games has typically been as fantasy escapism. These are worlds we go into to get a break from our normal, everyday lives. In these microcosms we can be a wizard, a space marine or rule a simulated kingdom. But what if games took a different perspective? What if games were designed to engage you more deeply in your personal reality rather than just distracted you from it? We're at a point now where our ubiquitous technology can build an amazing situational awareness of each of us, if we let it. From that awareness we open the possibility of a new lens on our world, a whole new sense in a way. I'd like to talk about what going down this path might look like from my point of view. Will Wright Stupid Fun Club Will Wright, widely acknowledged for creating the simulation video game genre, is the creator of SimCityTM and The Sims, and unveiled the highly anticipated SporeTM in September 2008. The Sims franchise has now sold over 100 Million units around the world. A true gaming industry legend as a result of his pioneering contributions to video games, Wright has been the recipient of several prestigious awards and honors. Rolling Stone named Will Wright "One of the 100 People who are Changing America," in March 2009, placing him among artists, leaders, scientists, and policymakers who are "fighting every day to show us what is possible." In 2008, Will received the first-ever Gamer God Award at the Spike Video Game Awards as a testament to his revolutionary work. In 2007, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts recognized an individual in the Video Game Industry for the first time when it named Wright a fellow. He also received the Producers Guild of America Vanguard Award that same year.
