Definitely use failover instead of take over. (OP, I liked your blog! Sweet post, aleung.github.io/blog/2015/01/06/haskell )

That reads a lot better! Even "technology learning" is a weird phrase to my ear.

comment Can I say that someone creates a tendency?
@TRomano I smiled at "BigData guru" as it reminded me of "rock star programmer". In many ways, BigData is a "fad" or "trendy" more than a trend. True, a "wave of interest" would make more sense, but OP didn't ask for that. Fortunately, these words aren't associated with quantities nor metrics, so it isn't necessary to be extra careful with word choice pertaining to BigData, well, not more than any other subject of study.
