1) Nicolas Fouché made it known on Twitter that Riak (and MongoDB) are
part of the new app he and his team just launched.

2) While we are on the topic of production users... Jason Williams and
DigiTar were kind enough to put together a few words for the Riak Wiki
about why they are running Riak.

Thanks, Jason!

Conf. He's planning to talk about drop-in messaging systems for Rails
built on top of Riak and SQL. If you're planning to attend, vote for
this talk if you haven't already.
