Being new to this forum I may hit an "out of bounds", but my I7 tells me 
"big data" should not even be about that "big". Size doesn't matter. 
It's the complexity of data, and it's not even that. It's the complexity 
of the structure of the data, like it's all about the complexity of the 
anatomy of the swing, not just the complexity of the swing. A "big 
swing" mostly brings you out of bounds, in particular when you focus on 
that "big". Or at least, it produces a huge slice.    (03)

Data "mining" is really silly, if you ask me, and I for one think we 
should reserve "mining" just for minerals, not for knowledge.    (04)

It's all about what logic really is, and isn't, isn't it?    (05)
