Have you used Lua for MapReduce?

Have you used Lua for MapReduce?

From the post:

Lua as a cross platform programming language has been popularly used in games and embedded systems. However, due to its excellent use for configuration, it has found wider acceptance in other user cases as well.

Lua was inspired from SOL (Simple Object Language) and DEL(Data-Entry Language) and created by Roberto Ierusalimschy, Waldemar Celes, and Luiz Henrique de Figueiredo at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Roughly translated to ‘Moon’ in Portuguese, it has found many big takers like Adobe, Nginx, Wikipedia.

Another scripting language to use with MapReduce and Hadoop.

Have you ever noticed the Tower of Babel seems to follow human activity around?

First, it was building a tower to heaven – confuse the workforce.

Then it was other community efforts.

And many, many thens, later, it has arrived at MapReduce/Hadoop configuration languages.

Like a kaleidoscope, it just gets richer the more semantic diversity we add.

Do you wonder what the opposite of semantic diversity must look like?

Or if we are the cause, what would it mean to eliminate semantic diversity?
