        Subject: big data is bunk


Some here will be bothered, others amused by the opinions of Harper 
Reed, Obama's chief techie for the 2012 campaign, on big data. See Marc 
Parry, "'Big Data' Is Bunk, Obama Campaign's Tech Guru Tells University 
Leaders", Chronicle of Higher Education for 30 October,
