Over on the YDN blog we have news of a couple items. I won't say a lot about them here, since I wrote the first one and I'd just be duplicating information in either case...
- Open Source Distributed Computing: Yahoo's Hadoop Support begins to lay out the story behind Hadoop and Yahoo's involvement in the project. Hadoop is an Open Source grid computing system that's making it easier and easier to build large clusters of data-crunching servers.
- YSlow Release on YDN talks about the release of YSlow, a kick-ass Firefox extension that helps to analyze slow pages and recommend ways to improve performance.
Both of these are big news for completely different crowds of people and both are another step in sharing the technology that we use internally at Yahoo every day. Check 'em out.
Expect to hear more about both Hadoop and YSlow on the Yahoo! Developer Network.

YSlow is awesome, and also happens to have an awesome name. Great job.
Someone should run YSlow on http://developer.yahoo.com/yslow/ ...
Wow, you can make Hadoop work in a stable manner? This I'd like to see more information about. :)
It's nice to see such fanfare and not a single mention of the fact that Hadoop and Hadoop Distributed File system are open-source implementations of Google's infrastructure.
Jeremy: We did run it against the YDN site. You'll see that in a screencast soon.
Could they perhaps release YSlow under the GPL/LGPL/MPL tri-license so that it could potentially be used by Mozilla-related projects?
In general, better to not use the MPL on its own, it's not compatible with anything else unless it is dual-licensed.
Yes that's awesome!
Thanks for info.
I think this is a really awesome application that you've developed!!
