Yeah, that was the program they wanted me to support. It started at U
Wash and grew from there, to Stanford, then Berkley and took off.

Google itself is using Hadoop in its University program, see
http://code.google.com/edu/parallel/mapreduce-tutorial.html, and
encouraging universities such as Berkeley to expose students to MR in
their CS curriculum.

It even has a biblio entry of 'Open Source MapReduce:
http://lucene.apache.org/hadoop/'.

Given the hard time Google has recruiting people with skills that
match their infrastructure, sueing around Hadoop would be a very
unclever move as no one would then be able to train him/herself on
those types of technologies.

Let's face it, infrastructure and use of technologies such as MR give
Google a headstart, not MR per se.

Just my 2ct worth.
