"Insightful and diverse essays by leading tech journalist, Mike Barlow on many important topics connected with Data Science. Not limited to a specific type of analytics, or software applications, or the deprecated term "Big Data"-- This collection of essays touches on the emerging Industrial Internet, the world wide Maker Movement, fading divisions between software and hardware, tools such as Hadoop and Machine Learning, and pervasive issues such as Data Security and Governmental Regulation. Highly recommended, blends the insights of an early participant with the overview of a knowledgeable journalist."
