August 02, 2002: Google Chief Operations Engineer Keynotes

Wil Cox wrote in to tell us that Jim Reese (whose Technology Behind Google presentation we commented on previously) appears to begiving a similar presentation as the USENIX LISA keynote: "Scaling the Web: An Overview of Google (A Linux Cluster for Fun and Profit)". "This talk will cover the technology behind Google: company overview, search parameters and results, hardware and query load balancing, Linux cluster topology, scalability, fault tolerance, and more." Should be interesting, I hope someone makes a recording. Unfortunately it seems that TechNetCast, the organization that covered the last show is having financial difficulties. If you're interested, I suggest you send them some words of support.
