Rule the Data, Rule the World

There are many sites popping up that offer gobs and gobs of data. is just such a site.

AOL "leaked" gigs of data on searches; Netflix gives away gigs of data and offers $1MM to anyone who can beat their algorithm by a certain percentage; the list goes on. I'm guilty of hording data like this. Unfortunately I don't have much time for data exploration (at least when I'm not getting paid).

My point is, that if you can make sense of data, which is more freely available than ever, then you have a marketable skill. Make it visually appealing and then you've got another feather in your cap.

That's where I'm headed.
