Riak Recap for September 1 - 2

1) Basho Developer Ryan Zezeski is in Baltimore and is looking for
other like-minded Baltimoreans for talk Riak with (for meetups.
presos, etc.). If this is you, shoot an email to rzezeski at basho.com.

* Some details here --->

2) Mårten Gustafson (@martengustafson) posted a slide deck a few days
ago from a recent talk he gave called "Approaching and evaluating
NoSQL." Riak gets a non-trivial mention. Thanks, Mårten!

* Check them out here --->

3) John Newman joined the Basho Team as a Developer Advocate.

* Details here on the Basho Blog --->

4) Riak 1.0 Preview Meetups are happening in both San Francisco and
New York on September 8th. If you're in the area and already
registered, you should do so; seats are going fast.

over year now.)

wiki repo and add your details (or email me) --->
