My version

I've been thinking a lot about big data lately. I know the definition is somewhat fuzzy, but in my world, it's pretty straight forward: any chunk of data (be it a large scientific data set, a directory of videos or songs, or several large compressed server backups), that needs to be handled or transferred (and in doing so causes pain), is considered "big."
