An irreverent, provocative, and visually fascinating look at what our online lives reveal about who we really are--and how this deluge of data will transform the science of human behavior. Big Data is used to spy on us, hire and fire us, and sell us things we don't need. In Dataclysm, Christian Rudder puts this flood of information to an entirely different use: understanding human nature. Drawing on terabytes of data from Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, OkCupid, and many other sites, Rudder examines the terrain of human experience. He charts the rise and fall of America's most reviled word through Google Search, examines the new dynamics of collaborative rage on Twitter, and traces human migration over time, showing how groups of people move from certain small towns to the same big cities across the globe. And he grapples with the challenge of maintaining privacy in a world where these explorations are possible. Audacious, entertaining, and illuminating, Dataclysm is a portrait of our essential selves--and a first look at a revolution in the making. --… (altro)

I really enjoyed this book. I love the data he pulled together to show interesting things about how humans interact while online. While you don't need a background in statistics I will say that my having one made this book a lot deeper. I found myself asking questions about his data and what it was really telling us. Which the author also did on a number of occasions. A great read if you like data and what it tells us. ( )

Book on Big Data. If you are curious what "they" can learn about you from your digital imprint, this book will tell you. ( )

You are concerned that the NSA is aggregating data and spying on you? If you check, or look at a picture of the NSA (Why does an office building need a radar dome on the roof?), you will see that has always been their job. But while you are worrying about that, you are telling scores of commercial data aggregators everything about yourself, just by what you search for on Google, what you like on Facebook and where you access the internet from. Your sex, your race, your sexual orientation, your income, your politics, your IQ (from the type of French fries you like), it's all an open book.
This book is the story from one involved nerd, along with some nice graphics.
People's activities are somewhat limited, so the use of this data is mostly to target you for repression or elimination in a repressive society, to sell you something in a capitalist society, or for law enforcement to find you. So if you're only getting targeted Amazon ads, be happy.
Of course, I can only imagine what the data will be used for after Skynet becomes active. ( )

The author is a graduate from Harvard who studied math, however this novel reads as if he had a journalism degree. There is so much information presented in a readable, albeit voyeuristic, manner that the book seems more like a social psychology book. It's as much fun to read as reading your own horoscope! This book is obviously well researched and takes the reader through "stupendous" amounts of information while being engaging. ( )

The book was dry but very interesting. ( )
