Apache Hadoop wins Guardian's "Innovator of the Year"
The Guardian has given its "Innovator of the Year" award to Apache Hadoop as part of the fourth MediaGuardian Innovation Awards which were held in the National Media Museum space at the London Science Museum.
The judges selected Hadoop because the distributed computing software framework was a greater catalyst for innovation than other nominees such as WikiLeaks and Apple's iPad. Hadoop had, they said, "the potential to completely change the face of media innovations across the globe".
