1) For anyone in or around San Francisco, Stackmob
(http://www.stackmob.com/) is hiring developers with Riak experience.

databases. From the job post:

"We are looking for highly skilled and passionate engineers who share
our drive for making a large impact in the Mobile space.  We want
people who love using cutting edge technologies to build products and
services that are truly game changers and not afraid of tackling
challenging technical problems."

(from ricardoG via #riak)

     A --- The clientID is used as the Actor Id in the vector clock,
so this needs to be unique across any two clients that could be
modifying the same object concurrently. The Riak drivers should handle
supplying this for you. You can tweak it, but be careful. Keep in mind
that Riak will truncate it to 32bit and encode as a binary.

7) ericmoritz\0 and jmeredith had a quick exchange in #riak about
