Another great open source project and an opportunity to contribute  to encyclopedia of web-Wikipedia.

What is  HATNOTE?

HATNOTE is an open source projects created by wikipedia to create a map of recent changes added /created on wikipedia by unregistered users and the article they edit.
In other words whenever an article is created/edited , changes are shown on the map and you get to know the  approximate location of the user.
A snapshot of map look likes this :-

If you look carefully you will see  228 edits being made in just 34 seconds 

How It Works ?

This map listens to live feeds of Wikipedia revisions, broadcast using wikimon. The map is built using a few nice libraries and services, including d3DataMaps, and This project was inspired by WikipediaVision’s (almost) real-time edit visualization

Contributing to HATNOTE
If you are amazed by this project and /or feeling like contributing to this project, open source community is there to welcome you :)
The Wikipedia Recent Changes Map is open source and available on github.

CRUSH (Custom Reporting Utilities for SHell) is a collection of tools for processing delimited-text data from the command line or in shell scripts.
For help getting started using CRUSH, or to see a demo of what it can do, try the CrushTutorial. For a list of the utilities provided in CRUSH and links to their documentation, see the UserDocs. Or see ApplicationDevelopmentWithCrush for a detailed look at writing applications using the CRUSH toolkit.

The gflags package contains a library that implements commandline flags processing. As such it's a replacement for getopt(). It has increased flexibility, including built-in support for C++ types like string. Here is introduction how to use it.

The glog library implements application-level logging. This library provides logging APIs based on C++-style streams and various helper macros. It can be used under Linux, BSD, and Windows. Here is introduction how to use Glog.

5.Google Perf Tools

These tools are for use by developers so that they can create more robust applications. Especially of use to those developing multi-threaded applications in C++ with templates. Includes TCMalloc, heap-checker, heap-profiler and cpu-profiler.

5.Google Sparsh Hash
An extremely memory-efficient hash_map implementation. 2 bits/entry overhead! The SparseHash library contains several hash-map implementations, including implementations that optimize for space or speed.
These hashtable implementations are similar in API to SGI's hash_map class and the tr1 unordered_map class, but with different performance characteristics. It's easy to replace hash_map or unordered_map by sparse_hash_map or dense_hash_map in C++ code.
They also contain code to serialize and unserialize from disk.

Omaha, otherwise known as Google Update, is a program to install requested software and keep it up to date. So far, Omaha supports many Google products for Windows, including Google Chrome and Google Earth, but there is no reason for it to only support Google products.
We know that keeping software updated is both important and hard, and so by open-sourcing this project, our hope is that perhaps we can help others solve this problem. So, if you'd like to get involved, or even use Omaha to support your own software projects, then just follow the instructions in the Getting Started guide below, and you'll be good to go!

Protocol Buffers are a way of encoding structured data in an efficient yet extensible format. Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC protocols and file formats. Here is developer guide, this protocol can be used in many languages and it is suported by few IDE - for example NetBeans
