With all the news about “Big Data”, I had a question:
Where does Big Data come from?
So I researched and here are the Big Data “Sources” that I found:
1. Enterprise data (emails, word documents, pdf’s, etc)
3. Social Media
4. Sensor Data
5. Public Data (energy, world resource, labor statistics etc)
Am I missing anything? Please feel free to point those out!

I think academic data should be included….they are the compilers of data that advances science and medicine…an estimated 1.43 million articles were published in 2010 with a growth rate of 2.5%. Unfortunately, most of the data is locked away behind big publisher’s walls.
Thanks for adding academic data. Updated the Blog Post.
