Data, especially big data, can be overwhelming, but for those who understand the power of analytics, data is beautiful. With the right tools, analytics can help us find recognizable patterns - and therefore meaning - in all kinds of data

Deleted important contacts by accident? iOS wiped all the data on your iPhone? iPad is lost and all the data are gone as well? Don’t despair. iOS Data Recovery can easily restore lost data on iPhone, iPad and iPod from iOS device, iTunes backup or iCloud backup. No need to worry about data loss after jailbreak, iOS upgrade, factory settings reset, error deletion, etc.

Data engineers tend to focus on software engineering, data base design, production code, and making sure data is flowing smoothly between source (where it is collected) and destination (where it is extracted and processed, with statistical summaries and output produced by data science algorithms, eventually moved back to the source or elsewhere). Data scientists, while they need to understand this data flow (and how it is optimized, especially when working with Hadoop) don’t actually optimize the data flow itself, but rather the data processing step: extracting value from data.

Is There a Big Data Bubble?  'Doc' Searls seems to think so.  His article, "Big Data is Just a Big, Distracting Bubble, Soon to Burst" explores his theory. 

Summary: "Business has bought into the mythology of big data and pervasive "surveillance-based marketing and advertising", but its time is coming to an end, says 'Doc' Searls.

+Parker Ylnoemaneno did you read the article? Furthermore, big data is a topic of interest for some people. I agree that it's a buzzword but it's still worth discussing for those who are interested in the topic.

Check out this list of popular content about Hadoop/big data Find out how Google's adoption of Cloud Dataflow doesn't mean Hadoop is on the way out.
Check out this week’s most popular content about Hadoop. There was a lot of discussion this week about the history of Hadoop and how it will continue to be used as the technology transforms. CBInsights also offered a comparison of Hadoop vs. NoSQL vendor funding. 1. Cloudera: Impala’s it for interactive SQL on Hadoop; everything …

Will #data be a "new currency"? Could we monetise our own personal data?+citizenme thinks so.+WIRED reports: http://wrd.cm/1raVs6N
Citizenme is trying to help users make money from their own data. The company hopes to eventually enable you to sell that data directly to advertisers and others of your choosing.

+Robert Rapplean +David Lannan +Steve Sether Hello all, I think I might have misunderstood what you were telling me earlier. I foolishly used 'information' in both its senses - which is exactly what you said, so I suspect some deep character flaw blinded me to it. I've gone back and tidied up a bit, but can see that I am walking a tightrope, and I will have to pay more attention to what I need to say about information... If anything. Thanks for the feedback both.
