I have an opinion on this article:

 http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/big-data-csail-intel-center-0531...

I only skimmed through the top portion of the article and a thought hit me hard:

This article is talking about the beginings of smart city technology where cars, houses, appliances, human clothes with embedded sensors, and a host of other devices will all be talking to either a central city database, or use search technology to obtain whatever the device is looking for from any other device anywhere in the world or both.
