What is the Next, Next Big Thing?
"The overflowing job board at February's Strata conference." - O'Reilly Radar
So, if "Big Data" is the "next big thing", then what is the "next, next big thing"?
Allan predicts that the "thirst for data" will drive the demand for the next, next big thing: ubiquitous computing, where computing is integrated thoroughly into everyday objects and activities. According to Allan, "yesterday's hot job was a developer, today with the arrival of big data it has become the mathematician. Tomorrow it could well be a hardware hacker." Allan's full blog post can be seen over at the O'Reilly Radar.
Do you think that big data and ubiquitous computing are the next big thing, or is it something else? Do you think that the developer is no longer a "hot job"?
