the idea is that you emit every event multiple times. So your map input record (event1, 10:07) will be emitted seven times during the map() call. Like I said, (10:04,event1), (10:05,event1), ..., (10:10,event1) will be the seven outputs for processing a single event.
The output key will be the time stamps in which neighbourhood or interval each event should be joined with events that happened +/- 3 minutes near it. So events which happened within a 7 minutes distance will both be emitted with the same time stamp as the map() output, and thus meet in a reduce() call.
A reduce() call will look like this: reduce(10:03, list_of_events). And those events had time stamps between 10:00 and 10:06 in the original input.
