re: Web 2.0 Expo: LinkedIn's Big Data Lessons Learned
Company information typically doubles every 18 months so how do companies keep their data secure when it is growing rapidly every day? Also, companies like google/facebook are increasing the amount of data they hold on us individually so what is secure 1 day, may not be the next.

"The greatest crisis facing us is not Russia, not the Atom Bomb, not corruption in government, not encroaching hunger, nor the morals of the young. It is a crisis in the organization and accessibility of human knowledge. We own an enormous "encyclopedia" - which isn't even arranged alphabetically. Our "file cards" are spilled on the floor, nor were they ever in order. The answers we want may be buried somewhere in the heap, but it might take a lifetime to locate two already known facts, place them side by side and derive a third fact, the one we urgently need.

Call it the crisis of the Librarian.

We need a new "specialist" who is not a specialist, but a synthesist. We need a new science to be a perfect secretary to all other sciences."

- Robert A. Heinlein, 1950.
