Big data great accounts
Thanks, Kevin, for this list.

I already had @KirkDBorne on my list. (the link you have there to his account doesn't work) The rocket scientist part is just one of the most interesting aspects of his more scientific views. Being an astrophysicist his views can't ever be boring. Great account to follow, indeed.

Following on Twitter
This is a great list! I'll definitely have to add these names to my Twitter feed. Prose Media already follows people who talk about marketing, branding, customer service, and writing, but it's always nice to have new names to follow! A plus about adding names is that it's an awesome networking opportunity! Great post.

And thanks to Information Week for this - I'm honored to be in such company.
