This weekend we ponder the essence of art, the new European Union views on privacy and learn about the existence of germs on aircraft. Oh my!
We take time to muse about big data. It has significant promises in the fields of promising merchandising and, perhaps, in customer service. But, big data has a problem with big physical objects, like a 250-ton airplane.
Again, this week we have plenty to think about. First, a retrospective of sexist ads shows how far American society has come from the 60s. Next, we learn what Europeans say about us behind out backs. Hopefully, we can learn something from them and dismiss what is simply cultural. Finally, a list of the most elegant government buildings in the country allows us pause to consider architectural beauty.
