Clarification of Spark's Origin
MapR's announcement is indeed an important milestone in the progress of Spark as an enterprise solution.   However I need to correct one key point in your article.  Spark, Shark, Spark Streaming, ML-lib etc were all developed at the UC Berkeley AMPLab (amplab.cs.berkeley.edu) and have been open source since their inception.  They are components of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS) which has been and continues to be developed by students and researchers in the AMPLab.   Databricks is a company that spun out of the lab and that was founded by many of the key developers of Spark.
