Big data is giving corporations the big head. And things are turning ugly fast. They've totally forgotten that their competitors stand ready to take dealers, distributors and customers off their hands.

You guys might want to take this for a spin. It's a free big data app for searching public data. It's a quick way to find info.

So, what, vendors expect the NSA to do their quality control work now? Do they expect cybercriminals to report vulnerabilities to them too? Perhaps they should just build their stuff better.

The push-back to gain rights and privacy protections in big data use is growing in strength and momentum. And the effort has some odd bedfellows too!

Microsoft infused Excel with extra oomph with the general availability of Power BI and a slew of new features for the spreadsheet. Bottom line, Microsoft just hit the sweet spot in corporate data democratization and BI adoption at the user level. Spreadsheet holdouts are gonna love this.

I second +Wayne Rash  analysis. From the beginning of the Snowden story, I have cautioned readers to look at both sides of the issue with equal skepticism. Like most topics of great import, details and motives matter. And those are almost never discovered to exist solely in, or entirely in favor of, one camp or the other. Now that the heat of the moment has passed, it's time to look at the evolving evidence with a more discerning eye.

I just heard that Snowden will speaking via video conference on Livestream at the SXSW event, so perhaps he is ok. But then again, he may not be for long. In any case, given current events his residence in Russia poses a conundrum for us all. Yes, it's good he blew the whistle on our government spying on everyone. But it can't be good that he's now in hostile frenemy territory holding a pile of U.S. military secrets. Here's my post on that...

If the people running my government were not COMPLETELY STUPID ASSCAKES, they would pardon him and ask him to come home.

I find it easier to list the publications I don't write for than to list the ones that I do. Also, I produced an award-winning paper-making documentary and picked up a couple writing awards along the way too.
