   bring a potluck item to share.

     * 6:15 PM Free book giveaways or other prizes
     * 6:30 PM Presentation begins
     * 8:00 PM Meeting ends


   Blekko is a new Web-scale search engine, offering focused searching using
   "slashtags", which enable you to restrict search results to the specific
   sites of actual interest. We'll use some open-source slashtags as
   examples. The rest of the talk will focus on Map/Reduce done better, NoSQL
   databases, tuning Linux for good performance, etc.

  Greg Lindahl

   Greg Lindahl is CTO at Blekko. He was previously a founder at PathScale,
   where he was the architect of the InfiniPath low-latency InfiniBand HCA,
   used to build tightly-coupled supercomputing clusters. Prior to
   PathScale's founding in 2001, Greg worked on commodity Linux clusters at
   HPTi, including the 1999 Forecast Systems Lab system, which was the first
   time a Linux cluster won a conventional supercomputing procurement. Greg
   started using Linux in 1996, while working on the Legion "grid"
   distributed OS project at the University of Virginia, and you can trace
   the history of his Linux laptop usage from the guides he's written at


  Although it is not required, we like to have an idea of how many
  people to expect, so if possible please email rsvp at penlug.org if you
  are planning to attend.


  For information on getting to the meeting, please see:

  Traffic on 101 can be pretty bad in the evening, so we encourage you
  to check traffic conditions before driving by dialing 5-1-1 on your
  phone or visiting www.511.org, and if possible to take public transit
  (best bet: bicycle via Caltrain) or carpool to this meeting.
