Interesting post by Microsoft. I think Jer Thorp some really good points.
BIG data is one of those things that is being talked about a lot and as Jer mentioned it really is just about looking at data in unique ways. This requires a lot of creativity and insight of what the data is really about.
So rather than reading 100’s of technical articles and documentation I’m focusing more on finding inspiration for visual metaphors for that data then working backwards from there to make it work.
It’s a fantastic and interesting challenge and I look forward to where it will lead me.
