Subject Re: TechCrunch article on Twitter and Cassandra

  Glad to hear it; and I'm thrilled to see innovation occurring in this 
space.  But one consulting company that's been in business for a couple 
of months now wouldn't help me with tier 1 deployments.

I'm looking forward to having an ecosystem around Cassandra - I think 
that Cassandra, and other NoSQL databases, are potentially a game 
changer in the business.

But Cassandra just isn't ready for the work I do yet.  That doesn't mean 
it's not ready for *a lot* of other use cases.
