Here's our highlight of articles, reports, and more from the data-driven world!
- In case you missed our post yesterday, the OECD released their 2012 Internet Economy Outlook—and the outlook is quite good.
- Every hype cycle reaches a point where people start to forecast the death of said hyped item or term, and "Big Data" is no exception. Writing for Forbes this week, Michael Phelan argues that within a few years, "Big Data" will die and we'll realize it's all about "Any Data."
- On Wednesday, TechAmerica Foundation's Big Data Commission released a new report, "Demystifying Big Data: A Practical Guide to Transforming the Business of Government" In light of Phelan's commentary, it may be useful to think about the Commission's research as work on data-driven policymaking and data-driven governance.
