GigaOM's Derrick Harris writes this summary of Kalev's appearance on this week's Structure Show, titled "Meet the computer scientist trying to digitize, analyze and visualize our past", summarized as "Kalev Leetaru has measured the Twitter heartbeat, gathered and analyzed 35 years worth of news data, and this week helped launch the Internet Archive’s collection on Flickr of millions of historic book images. He recently shared his fascinating thoughts on computing on the Structure Show." He concludes with this fantastic quote:
There are no highlights this week because, frankly, it wasn’t easy to find any in what’s essentially a 30-minute TED talk about the promise of cloud computing and big data. Listen, learn something and, if you’re new to these areas or to computer science, maybe be inspired by the pace of progress.
