This site was built by Data Wrangling to demonstrate how Hadoop can power a basic data driven website. The trend statistics and time series data that run the site are updated periodically by launching a temporary EC2 cluster running the Cloudera Hadoop Distribution. Our initial seed data includes the content of Wikipedia and hourly article traffic logs from the wikipedia squid proxy collected by Domas Mituzas. We made the first 7 months of this data available as an Amazon Public Dataset.
