1000 Corks Discovers Mezcal
About 1000 Corks: Wine is the love of their life but Mezcal is beginning to stir some powerful, yet welcome, emotions also!
Luckily, having run one of the largest Linux server companies, Sam Ockman, owner of 1000 Corks, had some experience in building out distributed computer clusters: so he started writing a program that would visit his favorite wine stores and check the prices of his favorite wines.
As he found new wine stores and new wines he liked, he added them to the program. Eventually he became tired of adding wines by hand, and he had some new ideas about search algorithms. So he rewrote the program to record all of the wines each company offered.
Nows he has done the same thing for Mezcal.
These days Sam spends a lot of time doing Python and search consulting for other people. But it's nice to have 1000 Corks as helping us find the best places with the best deals on Mezcal.
