Need to get tweeting
Those lists of favorite tweets was just about good enough to make me want to set up that twitter account I've been putting off for the last few years. I especially liked the first guy. Anyone who can use numbers to say something socially profound in a tweet is awe-inspiring.

Re: Twitter list to subscribe to?
@johnnykelso- Good suggestion. There isn't a list yet. But I'll look into making one for all of IWeek's favorite follows.

Re: Twitter list to subscribe to?
The people you mentioned really are true experts in the field of big data.  I will try to follow them as well.  I like how each of them try to look at big data in their own way. They also mentioned the challange big data has in their own work as well.

Twitter list to subscribe to?
Is there a Twitter list we can subscribe to that has all these accounts, or do we need to add each one individually?

Re: Data Pros
A meant with a feather touch. An example would be providing data that proves a point without ever trying to make that point. Just let the data stand on its own and slowly work on the viewer until they come to your inevitable conclusion.

Re: Data Pros
@David, can you give an example of data being using as a feather? Is the data being tickled or is the end user? Or are you talking feather as in feather touch?

Re: Data Pros
@jastro- Shouldn't we all read more literature? :)

What I like about Kline is that he uses numbers to contextualize the news rather than prove a point. Data can be used like a hammer or a scalpel or a feather. He seldom uses it as a hammer.

Data Pros
great list @dave -- I'd forgotten I had to follow Ezra Klein. I must have been asleep that day I followed fewer people on Twitter. It's not that I don't like him, I just wish he would read more literature...

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
