A big data top 20 for 2012


It has been a watershed year in the world of data. Whether it’s technically “big” or not, the technologies, uses and understanding of data analysis have grown a lot. I’ve been lucky enough to spend the year covering the space and writing a lot about it, and I’ve come across some interesting people, companies and trends doing so.

Here are the 10 most-popular posts I’ve written this year on the topic, as well as 10 of my personal favorites. Maybe they’ll jog your memory about some ideas you’ve forgotten, or perhaps you’re reading them for the first time. Either way, enjoy this look back at in 2012 in data.
