Interesting opinion on Hadoop:

“The Google guys have to be just laughing in their beer right now 
because they invented MapReduce a decade ago to serve the data storage 
needs of the Google crawl of the Internet… and moved all of that to Big 
Table,” Stonebraker says. “Why did they do that? Because MapReduce is a 
batch engine and they wanted their crawl database to be updatable, as 
they wanted to get Twitter feeds into it, in real time.”
