Our first meeting will include several Seattle area Big Data visionaries. We will do a little talking and a lot of listening to determine what our members are looking for. After that, we will put together a 6 month plan to make sure this group aggressively embraces one of the biggest Big Data issues - the BUSINESS OF BIG DATA.

    Sorry I missed the first meetup. I was actually attending another one called Seattle Marketing Analytics. I hope I will be able to make the next one.

    There were many people with different roles with a hand in Big Data. I'm not sure where the group is headed simply because there are developers, managers of databases, and program managers, then there's me. I am the security person in the room. I have the talent of seeing all aspects of an organization and how to best utilize IT at a low cost while knowing how to keep the information secure. There was a tension building in the room when a specific product was mentioned in a negative light and another person seemed offended. This will have to be segregation of areas of responsibility. What I have found is that a room full of experts, there must be a moderator. Subject matter experts do not like change or told they're wrong.

    The best format is a speaker introducing a topic, Q&A followed by splitting into groups based on subject area of topic.

    I have never worked with big data analysis, but I am a visionary with a lean forward change management attitude. Only thing holding me back is I am an unemployed veteran that is about to lose my family and possible divorce looms over my head.

    Big Data means potentially significant patenting opportunities, creative licensing strategies and strong potential for accelerated business value. I look forward to exploring the possibilities and the potential of this field.

    I'm looking for more ways to expand and exploit my new and hard-won Hadoop development experience. Can't wait to see how the rest of the group is applying this amazing tool!

    I look forward to seeing a number of local Big Data Guru's at this meeting! Seattle is one of the hubs for this huge movement. I'm holding off on the date and venue until I see what size meeting place we need!
