(This Google article suggestion comes from the CleverCS site):

"MapReduce is a programming model and an associated implementation for
processing and generating large data sets. Users specify a map function
that processes a key/value pair to generate a set of intermediate
key/value pairs, and a reduce function that merges all intermediate
values associated with the same intermediate key."

This looks like something that can be (nicely) done with Python too.
