Storm - a real time Hadoop like system in Clojure

I am very excited about the potential unleashed by Storm.

Previously at BackType, Nathan Marz has now built Storm into Twitter and then open sourced the platform.

Storm opens up a lot of possibilities, by bringing real-time distributed processing together in an elegant way. And it is built in Clojure!

Some useful links:

While playing around I wanted to try from Clojure (most examples are in Java). There is a great DSL for Clojure that makes using Storm super easy. I forked the storm-starter project to add examples based on a Gist from Nathan.
