Starfish is MapReduce for Ruby

MapReduce and CORBA are huge honking power drills, Starfish is a nice little screw driver. I call Starfish the MapReduce of Ruby because they both do the same task: screw.

I am trying to build the simplest to use, easiest to setup, and fastest to enjoy screw driver on earth. People who ridicule Starfish for its simplicity and lack of features are inadvertently praising me for succeeding at the goal I set for myself. Therefore, ridiculers, I thank you.

You should follow me on twitter here.
