TechSoup Global's Keisha Taylor selected as Internet Society Fellow to address the topic of "Big Data"
The Internet Society announced today that TechSoup Global's Keisha Taylor has been selected as one of two Fellows to participate in the 2012 Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Technology Foresight Forum held in Paris on October 22. The Forum will focus on the topic of "Harnessing Big Data as a New Source of Growth," and Keisha will address big data and its relationship to Internet governance.
We believe that the understanding and sharing of data is critical to the future impact and sustainability of NGOs. In June, for example, we organized a Transforming your charity by bringing your data to life seminar in collaboration with The Guardian in London.
Keisha writes about the topic frequently. See her recent post on the TSG blog for a concise description of Open Data, Big Data, Linked Data, Raw Data, Metadata, Crowdsourced Data, Data Visualizations -- and the increasing impact these have on the work of NGOs around the planet.
