The Rise of Big Data

The Rise of Big Data: Everyone knows that the Internet has changed how businesses operate, governments function, and people live. But a new, less visible technological trend is proving just as transformative: big data.

This recent essay in Foreign Affairs is one of the most thought-provoking essaysI have read in a long time. It is worth reading and re-reading because beyond the technical innovations the authors present are some serious implications for international and domestic political interactions. While, I don't know that this essay is necessarily a game changer in terms of the way one thinks about political philosophies, I do think it is of the scale Samuel Huntington's, Clash of Civilizations essay (and book) was in 1993. This essay demonstrates, what I think, is a fundamental difference between naysayers of technology and those that embrace its globalizing transformation: that man's telos is nowhere near.
