Dear Web Team:

just a quick note to let everyone know that Doug Judd has agreed to give a talk on Hypertable (http://www.hypertable.org).  Doug's bio is below and hopefully he will be sending an abstract to the volunteers list shortly.  If for some reason we do not receive an abstract from him, there is a brief description of a previous Hyptertable talk of Doug's here:


Doug Judd's bio: 

Doug has two decades of software engineering experience, primarily in the area of distributed computing and information retrieval.
