Big Data has been a theme for 2013, and it poses the threatening question of how one can possibly interpret all the data that is available to take in.
As consumers of data, we’re constantly deciding whether to “bookmark” a particularly interesting file, or make an entry in Evernote to come back to read it later. There is so much data being generated every single minute on the Internet that it becomes increasingly time-consuming to make decisions such as: Should I read it now? Should I make a note of it in my Moleskin notepad? Should I email the link to myself?
In short, we spend more time sorting through, curating and organizing data that already exists. In doing so, we create more data about data!
