danah boyd | apophenia » Six Provocations for Big Data

The Big challenges for Big Data according to Boyd: 'Will large-scale analysis of DNA help cure diseases? Or will it usher in a new wave of medical inequality? Will data analytics help make people’s access to information more efficient and effective? Or will it be used to track protesters in the streets of major cities? Will it transform how we study human communication and culture, or narrow the palette of research options and alter what ‘research’ means? Some or all of the above?'

The Big Idea: The Age of Hyperspecialization - Harvard Business Review

The Big Idea: The Age of Hyperspecialization - Harvard Business Review | Learning with technologies | Scoop.it
The Big Idea: The Age of Hyperspecialization, by Malone , Laubacher , and Johns is a pretty depressing read as you can see that this is what the future holds if nobody protests against it. Business greed will like the fragmentation of knowledge. They don't care about the lack of wisdom it generates. It suits them to keep workers doing their little bit without understanding the big picture.
