    It is good to focus on big data companies in Latin america. I like the article and posted a link to it on www.bigdatarelated.com. Thanks

  • Gallery buggy on Firefox 29.0

    Pictures 3 and 4 loaded without text, and on retrying, not at all. I could view them normally on IE 11, though. That's some progress, considering that until a couple of weeks ago I couldn't view any ZDnet page on Firefox without an "Error 500" happening...

    Well, all these companies have interesting ideas, and what's most important, they appear to be very much optimized and fine-tuned to the Brazilian market's reality and needs, which I'm sure is a large part of their success. Kudos to those young entrepreneurs and I wish them all the best.
