New Futuring Resource:
The field of “big data” is fascinating because it not only involves some of the newest of new technologies, but also promises to be the root of broad scale change in field it touches. Participating in those changes – and their benefits – requires first that countries around the world have access – starting with access to the most basic tools like the Internet and broadband, high-speed communications. The World Economic Forum has assembled a detailed look – country by country – of the quality of their Internet and communications technology. The report is free and and very accessible.
