Although I do wonder whether Google publishes papers on its technologies
a month or two before it replaces them* -- is PageRank (as described in
the original paper) still used?  Could they have moved onwards from GFS
in just 6 months?

*  That way, you get credit for openness, without the risk that a
competitor might pick up a hot tip.  Heck, if you write the paper
correctly, you might be able to send your competitors down all sorts of
interesting rat holes....
