Data science democratized

Interesting post. I always wondered how people might use all the scatter diagrams and other data visualization graphs that are available in various scientific fields. Here’s a thought from Mac Slocum at O’Reilly radar.

Significant implications emerge when you can bounce a question, even an innocuous one, against a huge storehouse of data. If someone like me can plug questions into a system and have it do the same kind of processing once reserved for a skilled minority, that will inspire me to ask a lot more questions. It’ll inspire a lot of other people to ask questions, too. And some of those questions might even be important.
