AWS Rocks with Database Migration Tools

Traditional, enterprise vendors discount AWS as providing IaaS and PaaS with lots of integration and monitoring magic. Sort of like positioning the move to the cloud as out-sourcing the local datacenter hardware. But, adopting AWS is doing more than a forklift move, it's also an opportunity to convert older systems from proprietary to open-source. Quentin Hardy of the NYTimes notes some of these announcements at Amazon's latest conference: 
Among the most notable, there was a 47-pound data storage device that A.W.S. would ship to a customer [aka Snowball], and for $200 would suck down 50 terabytes of data, incidentally converting it from an older system to a more modern one. There was a service called Database Migration, which takes data in proprietary systems and converts their schema to open-source products.
This is quite a phenomenal service -- AWS can ship a Snowball appliance to a datacenter, where it can consume terabytes, ready to be shipped back and transfer the data much, much faster than doing it over-the-wire. Actually, AWS boasts that by serializing multiple Snowball appliances, the throughput can be measured as up to a petabyte/week.
Combine the Snowball technology, with the AWS database migration tools, and it's possible to move "database schemas and stored procedures from one database platform to another, so customers can move their applications from Oracle and SQL Server to Amazon Aurora, MySQL, MariaDB, and soon PostgreSQL."

Is Maching Learning the New AI Rabbit Hole ?

Machine-learning is a hot topic, and right smack in the early adopter phase. MIT Technology Review quotes Jeff Dean of Google for it's popularity: "The enrollment in computer science program machine-learning classes is shooting through the roof."But, how applicable is machine-learning to most problems ? Is it a powerful, but niche, technology ? Prolog is a good historic parallel, as it promised to apply AI processing that would revolutionize computing analytics. Turns out, Prolog excels at a

MIT Media lab has built a GUI in front of the vast data store of US public records. It's the biggest time-swamp I've stepped into since the 2nd season of Daredevil. It's an amazing aggregation of data into visualization sets. It is simply, "the most comprehensive website and visualization engine of public US Government data." Look into a location and it'll break down per capita demographics from housing to health and safety. Even more interesting, to me, than the impressive interface, and

Canonical and Microsoft are integrating their desktop platforms ? I'm having difficulty wrapping my mind around this coalition. After all, Canonical's #1 bug fix with Ubuntu was to address Microsoft's monopoly: Microsoft has a majority market share in the new desktop PC marketplace. This is a bug which Ubuntu and other projects are meant to fix. As the philosophy of the Ubuntu Project states, "Our work is driven by a belief that software should be free and accessible to all." What's this
