---------------------------------------

Hi Folks,
I am new to this project, but have experience with Hadoop. I work in the Seattle are in the
Big Data space and I am also working on my second graduate degree (in Math and Stat.) My intent
is not GSoC participation, I just want to contribute to the Mahout project. Please let me
know how I can help.

Thanks.

> Clustering is one of the most used features in Mahout and has many applications [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_analysis#Applications].
> We have of lots clustering algorithms. There's:
> - basic k-means
> - canopy clustering
> - Dirichlet clustering
> - Fuzzy k-means
> - Spectral k-means
> - Streaming k-means [coming soon]
> We want to make them easier to use by updating the APIs and make sure they all work in
the same way have consistent inputs, outputs, diagnostics and documentation.
> This is a great way to gain an in-depth understanding of clustering algorithms, familiarize
yourself with Hadoop, Mahout clustering and good software engineering principles.
