Subject Re: Orange Labs is hosting an event about recommendation engines - March 3rd
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:45:40 GMT
Hi Jeremy -

I'm interested in attending this event.  I'm the CTO at TubeMogul 
(www.tubemogul.com).  We distribute video online, and do in-player video 
analytic tracking using Hadoop.  We're considering potential business 
avenues involving recommendation engines at some point.  I haven't been 
involved in the actual implementation of one, but have done some 
research and am definitely interested in the subject.

Please let me know the event details.
