I like this contra thinking .. about the idea of Big Data fundamentalism 

With so much hype around Big Data .. its easy to think that Big Data is the truth

Not so ..

To summarize the 6 myths of Big Data by Kate Crawford of Microsoft research 

I will be referring to this in my new book on the Mobile Data Scientist and my Oxford University course on Big Data for Telecoms
Myth 1: Big Data is New
Myth 2: Big Data Is Objective
Myth 3: Big Data Doesn’t Discriminate
Myth 4: Big Data Makes Cities Smart
Myth 5: Big Data Is Anonymous
Myth 6: You Can Opt Out
