I've started working on Hadoop at Yahoo! Great place and very interesting software project. By the way, we are hiring big time! Speak Java concurrently? Can explain how locking on object is different from class' locking? Looking for great place to work? Leave me a comment here w/ your email and I'll get back to you in no time.
That said, I've went to ApacheCon'09 last night (10 years anniversary of Apache Foundation) and happen to a group picture with The elephant - the actual Hadoop :-) - feels me with pride.
