Bull …

I really wish Jeff Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat wouldn’t keep claiming they “invented” MapReduce.

And taking out patents on it.

Because I was taught MapReduce as a grad student in 1994 (10 years before the bollox above) by a number of people. And I’m quite sure it wasn’t a new idea, even then.
