“When I started in this business, data was very, very uncool. Trust me.” 

Data is not uncool any longer. Consider that every minute there are more than 12 million texts sent and more than 4.3 million YouTube videos watched. It is estimated that humanity’s accumulated digital data haul will be more than 44 trillion gigabytes by 2020.  There is even a band called Big Data.
