Big Data for 2015

Rise of Data Virtualization

Hybrid Data Stores Become More Common

Semantics Becomes Standard

Hadoop Without Map-Reduce and Map-Reduce Without Hadoop

Databases Become Working Memory

Towards a Universal Data Query Language

Data Analytics Moves Beyond SQL

The JavaScript Stack Solidifies

from here.

I am not sure about sematics and I am not sure about Universal Data Query Language. Vice versa, I am sure they are not :)

Geo Signature and its applications

Our paper in the latest issue of IJISIS

D.Namiot, "Geo Signature and its applications", International Journal of Information Science and Intelligent System (IJISIS), vol. 4, no.1, pp. 105-118.

This paper summarizes definitions and uses cases for the sharing location information via geo messages. Geo messages let users of location based systems share location information as signatures to the standard messages (e.g., email, SMS). Rather than let some service perform the constant monitoring for the user’s location (Google Latitude) or share location info within any social circle (Facebook’s check-in, etc.) Geo Messages approach lets users share location data on the peer to peer basis. Users can share own location info via any of existing messaging systems. The basic tenet of this process is the separation of the identification and location information. With this approach shared location information (geo-coded link, map, etc.) does not contain the users’ identity. It uses identity information from the messaging system. It means that the whole process of location info exchange does not reveal user’s privacy. For a multilateral exchange of geo-positional information, this approach proposes a scheme with replaceable user authentication where only the creator of temporary name knows the identity mapping between temporary names and true identities.

Meta Data in REST services

An interesting reading - How to store and use metadata in REST services

The common goal of current metadata formats for REST APIs is to specify:

Entry point(s)
Resource paths
Methods to access these resources (GET, POST, PUT, etc.…)
Parameters that need to be supplied with these methods (Query, Template, HTTP Header, etc.)
Formats of inbound / outbound messages/representations (JSON Schema, XML Schema, Relax NG, etc.)
Status codes and error/fault messages
Documentary information (descriptions, etc.) for all these

WSDL is a good example from SOAP world. What do we have with REST?
