Coinciding nicely with Jakob Nielson's admonition Write Articles, Not Blog Postings (via Steve Loughran) here's my latest article, Running Hadoop MapReduce on Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3, published on Amazon Web Services Developer Connection.

It's almost a year and a half since I wrote my last article and one of the reasons is because I've blogged more. Not much, but more.

Jakob's got a point about being directed to short, old, irrelevant blog postings when you're looking for something. He's not saying don't blog, but rather try to write stuff that will be long-lived. Definitely something to aim for for tech writers - but not at the cost of not writing anything (so it's OK to sprinkle blogs with lighter weight stuff).
