Riak Recap for October 31 - November 1

1) Clint Shryock has a new project on GitHub called "sinatra-riak," a
data-browser of sorts that runs as a Sinatra app.

2) We merged another sizable contribution from Greg Stein to the
Python Client. Thanks, Greg!

* Code here --->

3) Ian Plosker put together a great piece of documentation about when
to use MapReduce, Search, and Secondary Indexes in Riak.

* Check it out here --->

4) We have new feature request up on features.basho.com.

6) The team at Bump Technologies gave a great presentation last night
about how and why they are using Riak and Haskell. Will Moss and the
team were kind enough to pass along the slides.

around to adding then to the wiki.

Consistent System" talk is online.

9) Julio Capote is working on a "disk backed, fast k/v cache" powered
by Webmachine and Bitcask.

* Code here ---> https://github.com/capotej/nolimit

Records, you should probably listen to this track while reading the
source code [Somewhat SFW] --->
