Haters Gonna Hate: 7 Ways to Deal with Criticism

Apr 28 4:37am
Learn how to handle the haters in a way that fits your personal needs, the community norms, and the specifics of the situation.

Yet even in those cases, the nonconstructive feedback is often louder and easily gets more attention. ...

The Future of Big Data: Distilling Less Knowledge Per Bit

Until recently, the word data didn’t require a modifier. But we passed a watershed moment when we started referring to big data.

Sadly, now, it appears that we have run out of appropriate adjectives. And yet data keeps getting bigger and bigger.
