Big Data. It's gotta be a buzzword, doncha think?
I'll get to that, but in the meantime I wanted to share this visual, created by DOMO, of how much data gets created, sent, moved every minute of the day. A friend emailed it to me - the original came from visualnews. Put all these 1s and 0s together, throw an algorithm or one thousand at them, and, yep, we're talking biiiiiig data.
FYI, at the #recodegood charrette last week one of the participants noted, "What we don't know about big data - what it means to have all this information stored, possibly forever, aggregatable and separate from us as individuals - is at least as big as the data themselves."
