The Human Face of Big Data: ARMA Live 2014 (Keynote)

ARMA Live Conference
San Diego Convention Center

Today I was really impressed with the keynote speaker. Rick Smolan is an amazing photographer with a love and appreciation of data. His images have been featured in Time, Life, and National Geographic Magazine. His breathtaking imagery has been featured on the covers of Fortune, Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report. He has also sold over 5 million books.

Rick Smolan and Jennifer Erwitt crafted a fascinating look at The Hunan Face of Big Data in their new book. Seriously…mind-blowing. If there weren’t 2,000 other people ready to meet the man with many books on the New York Times Bestseller List, I would have taken the time to introduce myself. In this new project, he took a closer look at people and how their lives intersect with data in positive ways. Some of the ideas he captured were truly worthy of recognition and ultimately, they were extremely thought provoking.
