Not especially new, but widely covered in the news this year: _big data_

If there were a question about the growing importance of big data, it was
answered at this fall's Laura Hanhausen Milton First-Year Lecture.  More
than 1,200 freshmen and transfer students from The College of Arts and
Sciences filed into Goldstein Auditorium for a lively discussion about the
pros and cons of big data in society.  Robert Enslin, "The Big Idea About
Big Data," Arts And Sciences [An annual publication of the College of Arts
and Sciences], Syracuse, 2013, p 4
