Wondering what Japan is saying about Fusion-io? Tweets can be hard enough to decipher let alone translated tweets...
Here are some tips on translating Tweets with Refine and Google Translate REST api.
- Imported data into Google-Refine remember to specify utf-8 character encoding on import. - You need to get a Google Translate API key - Tweet text column drop down select Edit column - Add column by fetching URLs... "https://www.googleapis.com/language/translate/v2?key=<access-key...goes here>&target=en&q=" + escape(value.substring(0,140),"url")
- The above creates a new column with the Translation json, now to parse, Use the add column based on this column command. - below gets the text value.parseJson()["data"]["translations"]["translatedText"] - below get the predicted Language code value.parseJson()["data"]["translations"]["detectedSourceLanguage"]
Some very wildly different results when comparing Twitter User Language, DataSift Prediction, Google Translation Prediction... check out the Google-refine text facets below:
Tough day of trading for FIO 25.50 -4.84 (-15.95%)! I started my brand tracking data capture for FIO today, capturing all(yep all) Tweets, FB posts, a few others... Interesting day to start following Fusion-io Q2 results last night.
Tweet from highest Klout score of 61 with 9,409 Twitter followers: regvulture - The Register: "Fusion-io revenues flash upwards: Market punishes Fusion for margin fall. Server flash array vendor Fusion-io saw http://t.co/YNbdov3G"
Tweet from user with most Twitter followers: 11,331 with a Klout score of 52 SeekingAlpha "Disappointing Margins Crush Fusion-io: Storage Wars Heat Up http://t.co/EZyZnyBR $OCZ $STEC $FIO"
Each article mentions some possible FIO competition. The Register mentions "EMC's Project Lightning" and SeekingAlpha "OCZ Tech (OCZ)". I wonder who may be caught in Innovators Dilemma? Is EMC really not putting their A+ team and priority into Flash because their MBA's made a graph that showed this cannibalizing their core business model? If EMC doesn't cannibalize/disrupt their business model someone else will. Is Fusion-io brushing off lower sticker cost OCZ Flash solutions because they don't have the fastest X per Y performance and only meet a niche that is not as profitable...now? OCZ < Fusion-IO < EMC =?
I am personally still bullish* on FIO. The public company curse of balancing cashflow for public display every 3 months must be a nightmare for a startup. Brand building, engaging new clients and verticals in proof of concepts, tweaking manufacturing for new product... I would expect these investments to pay off.
Data capture running, predictive model building starting soon ...
