As the co-founder and CTO of Infochimps, Flip’s mission is to build tools to organize, connect and comprehend massive information streams.

At Infochimps, we’ve built a cloud architecture capable of scaling up clusters of any size with the push of a button, using devops to make this possible with minimal distraction. We’re also the authors of Wukong, the widely-used framework for streaming in Hadoop.

Flip’s book, Big Data for Chimps, will be published by O’Reilly in May, 2013.
