Super Team
One would not expect to have a single person trying to master all the dimensions of security (software, infrastructure, risk management, etc.).  It takes a team.  I suspect the roles and dimension of big data are still so new, it's easy to see how organization's are latching onto the notion of a data scientist. It's a convenient way to embody the disciplines. There may be a few supermen/superwomen out there.  But most likely, the organizations that will profit from data sciences will be those with a super team.

So much to learn
Interesting post, but in this day one skill is not enough for you to be a scientist. You must know how to collect data, process data, build a model, and present it in a meaningful way.

Good luck
Good luck to those that find themselves needing to convince higher ups that they need to take on three people to tackle one particular function!
