Big Data and Their Problem by Luciano Floridi
Too Big To Know by David Weinberger
Weinberger is probably best known as co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto. Weinberger’s work focuses on how the Internet is changing human relationships, communication, and society. Weinberger argues that the massive amounts of data necessary to deal with complex phenomena exceed any single brain’s ability to grasp, yet networked science rolls on. The question is how we will ever make sense of scientific topics that are too big to know?
