IRMS 2013, Big Data - WHY ?

Big Data…what’s it all about. Why does everything have to be so big these days ?

We have Jumbo burgers, Jumbo cokes, Jumbo handbags, Jumbo cars, big holes in the ozone layer for Jumbo sky buildings, super large skinny lattes, and now big data, does it make you a big person to talk Jumbo data, is any of it anymore satisfying, lots of big questions.

Well I don’t have the answers, but I can tell you this - big or small your data is important and it should be looked after, it is why Restore have achieved such a Jumbo reputation for care with Archives

Anyhow, we will be at IRMS 2013 in Brighton, talking the ‘Jumbo sense’ on a modest stand. Come and have a chat and disagree if you want. Meantime this has got me thinking about what Spike Milligan would have made of it all, probably had a big chuckle.

Jumbo Jet

I saw a little elephant standing in my garden,
I said 'You don't belong in here', he said 'I beg you pardon?',
I said 'This place is England, what are you doing here?',
He said 'Ah, then I must be lost' and then 'Oh dear, oh dear'.

'I should be back in Africa, on Saranghetti's Plain',
'Pray, where is the nearest station where I can catch a train?'.
He caught the bus to Finchley and then to Mincing lane,
And over the Embankment, where he got lost, again.

The police they put him in a cell, but it was far too small,
So they tied him to a lampost and he slept against the wall.
But as the policemen lay sleeping by the twinkling light of dawn,v The lampost and the wall were there, but the elephant was gone!

So if you see an elephant, in a Jumbo Jet,
You can be sure that Africa's the place he's trying to get!
