Casual Fridays - Data Overload?


This week, I saw an interesting report on six technology trends proposed by the FutureMedia Conference at Georgia Tech. The trend that most hit me was the first one, which they are calling “Data Tsunami”. Conferences organizers reported that between now and 2020, an amazing 35 trillion gigabytes of information will have been created and replicated around the world. With all of this information hitting us at home and in the workplace, do you feel overwhelmed by all of the data in your life or are you managing to ride the wave? I’ll give my answer in the comments below but I’d love to hear from you too!
