+## Overview
+Apache Streams (incubating) unifies a diverse world of digital profiles and online activities
into common formats and vocabularies, and makes these datasets accessible across a variety
of databases, devices, and platforms for streaming, browsing, search, sharing, and analytics
+### What is Streams?
+Apache Streams contains JRE-based modules that developers can use to easily integrate with
online data sources and build polyglot indexes of activities, entities, and relationships
- all based on public standards such as [Activity Streams](, or other
published organizational standards.
+### Why use Streams?
+Streams contains libraries and patterns for specifying, publishing, and inter-linking schemas,
and assists with conversion of activities (posts, shares, likes, follows, etc.) and objects
(profiles, pages, photos, videos, etc.) between the representation, format, and encoding preferred
by supported data providers (Twitter, Instagram, etc.), and storage services (Cassandra, Elasticsearch,
HBase, HDFS, Neo4J, etc.)
+### Why is Streams important?
+The project aims to provide simple two-way data interchange with all popular REST APIs in
activity streams formats using a universal protocol.  No other active open-source project
has this ambitious goal, as well as production-worthy implementations for >10 services.
 Streams compatibility with multiple storage back-ends and ability to be embedded within any
java-based real-time or batch data processing platform ensures that its interoperability features
come with little technical baggage.
+### Disclaimer
+Apache Streams is an effort undergoing incubation at [The Apache Software Foundation (ASF)](
sponsored by the [Apache Incubator PMC]( Incubation is required
of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications,
and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF
projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability
of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
