If you can't make it opensource, at least write a serious paper to support the claims. Like Google did for Big-Table.
A lot of people think their systems are scalable and fault-tolerant. Most are not. And from the information provided, we can't tell.
We're a startup — we're not going to write an academic paper supporting the claims in the post. Nevertheless, Storm's an exciting project many people are curious to learn more about; that's why we've written something about it now.
We have a demo coming soon, and Storm itself will be open sourced soon enough.
It seems like this is buzz-worthy, (like http://mailchimp.com/omnivore/), but this pitch is nerd-focused, not potential-customer focused. If you pitch to nerds, you want a github link. If you pitch to potential customers, highlight the benefits that are now possible due to this innovation.
At least in our batch, we got drilled this repeatedly: Don't talk features. Talk benefits.
