What we're about

Since winning the 2012 TechCrunch Disrupt SAP Big Data Startup of the Year, for using chaos theory principles with twitter, I have been asked by friends and colleagues to start a meet-up about Big Data 2.0. So here we start!

As an ex-IBMer and veteran in social media, collaboration computing and knowledge management, I thought that it would be fun to look at the exploitation of this chaotic wealth of information in a more holistic approach that supports new practical uses.

This is a group for people and technologists who want to explore how to make sense of the information overload that comes with Big Data 2.0 (the Big Data of open social expressions, news, blogs and microblogs). During these gatherings, we will explore innovative technologies and best practices to make sense of what is trending and how to turn this mess into something useful. We try to meet once a week.

If you are in the discovery, SEO, advanced analytics, predictive computing or know someone who wants to share how you manage information overload, then you are right for this group. We are also open for candidates to present and lead a sessions.
