  • From Mary Meeker
  • The democratization of data

  • With visualization, users can identify relevant patterns and trends that might take hours or days with tabular reports. As a result, analysts can spend more time analyzing data and less time finding or creating it. “Business users no longer have to spend time building pivot tables or running SQL queries,” said Doherty of Dartmouth.

    18. 18. The world’s first bar, line, and pie charts of any renown are believed to have been devised in the late 1700s by a Scottish engineer and political economist, William Playfair (1759– 1823). Considered the founder of graphical data representation, Playfair produced a number of visualizations on economic and political issues of interest to the British empire

I used it to teach my kids about wind patterns yesterday and we forecasted tornados in the midwest given the large pressure area and cold/warm fronts converging there. Today I read that Texas indeed had tornados yesterday and the kids are awestruck that they figured that out”

    41. 41. Netflix & TV Programming
    42. 42. Netflix & TV Programming Using treasure troves of information on online customer viewing habits, Netflix are designing new TV series that their data tells them will win. Netflix's first foray into original programming, the "House of Cards" series, has been a big hit. The company says the series brought in 2 million new U.S. subscribers in the first quarter of 2013, a 7% increase over the previous quarter. The company's chief content officer said in February that Netflix uses "really big data" to pick which shows to produce and how to promote them. Yet Netflix's debut as a producer also demonstrates something far more important: how Big Data can fundamentally change the structure of an industry by shifting the balance of power.
