The idea here is to get a book of industry experts in various aspects of Data acquisition, manipulation, streaming, serving, visualizing, displaying, protecting, understanding and show how each specific aspect has a beautiful nature to it. I would love to see an Appendix of all the great data sources that folks can acquire and use. The Appendix could be built through wiki-based URL submissions.
Clarity of vision in a world of increasing data volume and complexity. Novel perspectives, new capabilities. Increased understanding and efficiency. Expanding the scientific method into more extreme conditions.
