Brand and Brian,

I owe you both a beer.

I happen to think that not having to translate "The Semantic Web is not an Easter Egg Hunt" into two hundred fifty languages before you can say it with confidence is a very cool and valuable idea.

My other observation is that the Intelligence Community really must fix that broken water condenser on Midway Island before they think about milk in my fridge ;o)

>Hi all--
>Thought you might be interested in the Big Data webinar tomorrow from the White House.  "Researchers in a growing number of fields are generating extremely large and complicated data sets, commonly referred to as “big data.” A wealth of information may be found within these sets, with enormous potential to shed light on some of the toughest and most pressing challenges facing the nation. To capitalize on this unprecedented opportunity—to extract insights, discover new patterns and make new connections across disciplines—we need better tools to access, store, search, visualize, and analyze these data."
