I just read an Article in the May 6th 2017 The Economist. Briefing The data economy, Fuel of he future.
An interesting thought that data is the oil of this century.
“Data are to this century what oil was to the last one: a driver of growth and change.” page 19
This idea gives you a lot to think about.
One thing to think about is the lack of fungibility for data.
And who owns the data?
Lot’s to think about.
