Short URLs, Big Data!

In this interesting 40 minutes talk Hillary Mason speaks about how she and her colleagues at bit.ly explore big chunks of data from billions of clicks on internet everyday to extract useful information out of it. Beyond all technical details and difficulties, the bottom line is that although the data is big, computation is all about insight, not about numbers. I enjoyed this talk and I hope you would as well.
