Ed Wiley (@WileyEd) 

Wile E. Coyote could have used big data to capture the Road Runner. Ed Wiley (no relation as far as we know) has all the big data you need as senior manager for Seagate Big Data Analytics. By far the best tweet-to-follower ratio of our group, with fewer than 200 tweets but more than 1,700 followers. The master of the retweet, you can count on Wiley to know the difference between quality and quantity. Favorite recent tweet: RT @CleanDataCentre What's even creepier than Target guessing that you're pregnant? ~ http://buff.ly/1pWTCIt  | via @bobehayes #bigdata

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: 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
@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.
