Data, a species that originated through the evolution of human being and is the foundation to all revolutions in human history, very silently and without much ado went through a big DNA transformation in the recent past...
Information was passed on as inheritance and stored in scripts during the early civilizations. Slowly the society became more open and free to information. Leading to the first transformation in data namely right to information.
Then came the computers that freed the format in which data could be authored, stored or delivered... this was next revolution that changed the data to its core and housed it in bytes away from the brains.
Later the net was cast on information and data grew into a new cult namely internet. This change made data available anywhere anytime and in any format.
There after the Social revolution, that brought more human touch to the data. Brains and Bytes came together to give the emotions that this species lacked. Semantics, Sentiments and Influence became the language of data.
Data became more ubiquitous with smarter devices.
This is the long evolution curve that data has taken from a flicker in the brain to a pulse in the byte.
While these changes were overt, Data went through some DNA changes in parallel that were not visible to normal eye balls but the effect was a chain reaction in itself...
The first visible change was in its state... the rigid predefined structure of data changed to a very fluid form with Velocity, Variety and Volume as its physical properties...These changes were neither very quick nor due to a single parameter. This gradual transformation was facilitated and triggered through human evolution and internet explosion.
Further the change was in the relationship stature these species had. It was very static and long term conventionally. Slowly the relationship status became dynamic and very contextual. Intent based associations and colonization became the social buzz word.
These associations flourished with emotions helped the human step successfully in this world of bytes....
