If you follow IT, financial or political news and trends, you may have heard a lot lately about the concept of "Big Data". I believe the term came out of the notion that a company like Google or the New York Stock Exchange is storing massive amounts of data every second, and that the stored data is incredibly valuable. This perceived value therefore brings influence and power, much like a major oil and gas company would gain under the umbrella of "Big Oil". After all, those who control the valuable assets, are given the benefit of the doubt more often.
Did you see the movie Minority Report? If not, let me summarize a cool part of the plot.... Tom Cruise plays John Anderton, a futuristic police-type officer, who solves crimes based on premonitions from a trio of psychics. Throughout the movie, ocular scans are used to identify people. The coolest part of the movie to me, is when the police send in these small "spiders" to perform ocular scans on all residents of an apartment building, in order to try to track Anderton, who has now been accused of a pre-crime. He escapes of course... after all, this is Tom Cruise we are talking about :-)
Back in June, our friends at AMI (Asset Management International) put out a new logo, website, verbiage... a complete rebranding overall. They also changed their website address and started a blog. If you haven't checked out the new look, new message and new online presence of AMI, it is worth your time to do so.
