As many readers may know, Facebook replaced their HTML5 version of their
mobile app a few weeks ago, in favor of a native application written in
Object C. It is much faster and smoother now, however, several functions
disappeared with this change. You can no longer just steal your friends
photos by holding down on the image and selecting "Save Image." You can
also no longer simply swipe to delete a snarky comment that seemed funny when
it first entered your brain, but now seems ill conceived (I used this a
lot!), and pasted links are now handled awkwardly. This is the give and
take between HTML5 and native applications that makes our lives interesting.

A few months back, Gartner placed big data at the peak of its hype cycle for
cloud computing, meaning most big data products are solutions looking for a
problem. I always find this bad entrepreneurial habit to be one of the most
frustrating of our industry. Having recently joined Meltwater as head of
marketing and product (BTW Meltwater is hiring marketing and product
managers!), I think a lot about big data and how to unleash it’s value to
solve important business problems, because that is our business. How does big
data go from “so what” to “must have”?
The Big Data Challenge
Big data is a by-product of the Internet and the ever increasing power of
computers. Kind of like petroleum sludge. We know there must be great value
buried within this vast, raw resource, but the challenge lies in figuring out
how to turn it into something useful like plastic, or the other th... (more)
