The presentation given by Tom Coates, the product manager of Yahoo's FireEagle, at Webstock 09 in New Zealand is now online. It's well worth a look if you've got 50 minutes to spare as he has produced an excellent summary of the online data space and has some good pointers to future opportunities.
In particular he argues:
- data is meant to be shared
- there are real possibilities in real time data on the web
- privacy is an opportunity not a threat if you view it correctly.
As I say, well worth a look.
