About the Human Face of Big Data

To start, here is a nice quote from the video. The quote is from Eric Schmidt of Google.

From the dawn of civilization until 2003, humankind generated 5 exabytes of data.
Now we produce 5 exabytes of data every two days.
…and the pace is accelerating

Rick Smolan provides a good talk. He is behind The Human Face of Big Data project. I don’t have a copy of the book, but it looks really intriguing. The talk briefly explains what the book/project is all about.
