The New York Times has a nice article (“A Deluge of Data Shapes a New Era in Computing”) about the “Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery” book, which also happens to include my “A platform for all that we know: creating a knowledge-driven research infrastructure” essay :-) Check out my October blog entry about the book.
It’s great that the article focused on Jim Gray‘s observations around data-intensive computing, the availability of scientific data and literature online, and interoperability. Jim’s work and thinking continues to inspire me. I am soooo honored to have met and worked with him. He‘s inspired so many!!!
