I’m off to California this weekend, heading for Santa Clara and O’Reilly Media‘s inaugural Big Data conference, Strata.

There are some great sessions on the Programme, and I look forward to comparing the diverse ways in which Big Data concepts and methods are being put to work across a range of market segments. I also look forward to exploring answers to some of the questions I posed back in November.

As usual, the diary is filling up with meetings, briefings, and the odd conference session, but there are still some gaps to fill. If you’re at the event – or in the area – and want a chat, why not grab one of the slots over on Tungle?
