The Geek Marketing Blog

While researching for a forthcoming blog I’m writing about applications of “Big Data” for social entrepreneurs, I ran across this amazing blog series by the Skoll World Forum called “How Can Big Data Have a Social Impact.”

The insights shared in this series are worth any business person’s time to read, as they show how typical problems with big data we face in industry are exacerbated when trying to solve the world’s hardest problems. Also fascinating is how the convergence of big data disciplines with cloud, mobile, and social technologies creates amazing solutions – but only when it improves the human condition.
