Think Big. Move Fast.

We live in a world of lists, ratings and rankings; from Consumer Reports and Yelp to polls and best of lists, you name it we’ve got it.  Unfortunately, for consumers, there are so many lists and they have become subjective that they lack any true information utility. Do we really need another “30 under 30″ or “Best Places to Live” list?

I don’t think so, but you can check out the lists I would like to see in my latest post for Forbes:  http://www.forbes.com/sites/ciocentral/2012/09/25/the-problem-with-lists-and-the-fix-from-big-data/

    * insert alternative demographic
