"Is my data Big enough for Hadoop?" If you're asking, then probably not! Instead, try AWK. It's on your computer, it's easy to use, and you can do a whole lot with it. This talk will (re-)introduce you to AWK, the best little stream processor you could ever ask for. Learn how to map or reduce or both with Unix tools that have existed in one form or another since the 1970s. Don't be ashamed of your small-to-medium data — embrace it with AWK!
