This article about Big Data was in the Wall Street Journal Opinion section on Monday:
The Big-Data Future Has Arrived
The article is about a PBS documentary that aired last night. Unfortunately, I was unable to watch it, but I plan to very soon. Instead of explaining it, I've embedded the trailer below.
It may be fun or exasperating to watch the Presidential election, or the stock market, or hockey, but believe me, what they discuss in this documentary is significantly more important to your and your families' futures over the next twenty years.
