Re: Big Data Prophets

As for the Big Data Prophets, whereas I can see they want some Big Data to play with, I don't know how they will afford that much data. Perhaps it's all Wizard of Oz, smoke and mirrors, the Big Data TV Evangelists asking for investment, but for ill-specified returns.

(I think the storage vendors will be among those who are hoping for sales of satellite images, rather than those paying for the images themselves.)
