Interesting Reading

A few links for your information:

If you've noticed well-placed political ads on your screen lately, political big data is the reason.  Read up on how they know what they know and what they're doing with that information:  "Big Data is Watching You:  Finding Likely Voters in Unlikely Places," by Jordan Lieberman, New York Observer 9/03

Wonder what kind of data is connected to your name?  Now you can check, "Acxiom Lets Consumers See Data It Collects," by Natasha Singer, New York Times, 9/04

Arming teachers?  Maybe not such a good idea.  An elementary school child was able to shoot an officer with his own gun during the officer's school visit.  Read "Lodi Police Officer Shot When Child Pulled TriggerOn His Gun At Reading Event," by Andrea Menetti,  CBS Sacramento, 9/02
