Big data gets its own book: 'The Human Face of Big Data' | Internet & Media - CNET News

A crowdsourced big book of big data
"The book, which has a planned publication date of December 4, is packed with powerful portraits of how life is changing in a world filled by a never-ending stream of data -- from constant Facebook updates to signals from our smartphones to new data-driven ways to predict heart-attacks in real time. There's an ongoing data-collecting component of the project as well. Smolan released accompanying mobile apps in September and, with permission, has been recording data of people's lives from around the world that he'll publish in a couple of weeks."
