Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Big Data Zone (June 27 to July 4). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Interactive Data Visualization

Recently, "interactive report" is becoming a hot topic in data visualization. I believe it is becoming the next generation UI paradigm for KPI reports.

2. The Origins of the Term "Big Data"

It may have come about innocuously enough, in an article written in 1989 about organizations mining data for marketing purposes.

3. Payloads Are Neat, but Where’s a Complete Example for Solr?

I’ve been a bit frustrated whenever I discuss payloads in Solr by the lack of an example I could find that gave me all the pieces in a single place. So I decided to create one for Solr 4.0+ (actually, 4.8.1 at the time of this writing, but this should apply for all the 4x code line).

4. Top 10 Hadoop Shell Commands to manage HDFS

Top 10 basic Hadoop HDFS operations managed through shell commands which are useful to manage files on HDFS clusters.

5. How to Lie with Data

There are plenty of books telling data scientists (whatever they are) and others how to visualise data, how to tell stories, and how to persuade.
