Hello Arijit,

That is very good to hear, Have you been working with the MapReduce Mahout algorithms? Have
you used any of the new Samsara algolrithms?  This is where we've been focusing our work;
around distributed linear Algebra based frameworks and  Algorithms.  We're actually just now
working on a release which is centered around GPU bindinds and Native Multithreading for Distributed
Matrix operations.  We also will be introducing a new pipeline based framework for algorithms.

We are always looking for contributors so you'd be more than welcomed if you dropped by to
say hi :).

We do have a blog that we've been hoping to get started but have not had the bandwidth lately
It's up but actually empty.

Maybe we could discuss a blog entry to talk about how you've used mahout in your work? We
are trying to get people to see what the new frameworks have offer.

Very nice to meet you,

Hi Andy,
     I am using Mahout for NLP specifically for semantic searching in
Indian languages as part of my PhD will be my pleasure to
contribute for mahout and also take part in the discussion...with a huge
data in hdfs mahout has the capability to help us for decision making...You
may share the link of mahout specific forum/blog also (if required)..I will
be obliged to conribute.
