In this video, we're proud to bring you a TEDx video from one of our friends - Big Data, Small World by Kirk Borne.

 

Kirk Borne is a data scientist and astrophysicist who worked for NASA for almost 20 years - including working on NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the Space Science Data Operations projects.

An avid tweeter and re-tweeter, Kirk spends far too much time on Twitter - but claims that he doesn't do as much as people think he does!

Enjoy the video!
