I can see where very large data sets and the attendant infrastructure of storage, compute, and applications require unique and creative approaches.

There are certainly unsolved (or unloved) problems because the tools required have yet to be built or have yet to be applied to the problem.

Similar to the ice age that changed the world, the big data change could follow the same timeline precisely because it is big and complex and slow moving.

What's your feeling about the pace of world change attributable to big data?

An incremental, glacial change or a decade or sooner?

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
