Jonathan Ellis’s “state of the union” talk was interesting for a variety of reasons. The struggles they’re having with hinted handoff seems to be one of the classic symptoms of trying to build a project around someone else’s whitepaper – it’s good to hear that they’re starting to overcome the difficulties and actually get a good feature into play. I was also really pleased to see that we’d managed to take care of two out of three of Cassandra’s chief complaints about Thrift. (Cassandra’s near-switch to Avro has me nervous.)
