I secretly hoped that you could zoom out on the dinosaur graph and the peak would be a horn/spike/plate :(

I'm going to have to agree that Dinosaur Porn wins for WTF moment of the day.

Big Data was the pseudonym I a friend used when I he did adult films to pay the rent in college.

So the man-porn world peaked before the girl-porn world.

Sir, Star Fleet regulation 1045-3b clearly states that I should know how to quit you. And yet I can not.

What about a graph for creampie vs. casting couch videos?

"The team looked at ("looked at," to be clear, in the most scientific sense) videos uploaded to the porn site Xhamster between 2007 and February 2013. There were around 800,000 of them. "

Also, this isn't big data ... it's under 1 million rows of data, I can process that on my desktop machine using end user tools.

When I hit about 1 billion rows, I have to start throwing stuff up to a server and then at some point, which I haven't hit it with the data sets I work with yet, I imagine I would have to throw the data into hadoop or something.

Huh, amateur teens are out, mild revenge is in.
 
2014-02-01 11:54:29 PM  
it's not how big the data is, it's how you use it

I can't watch porn anymore without wondering about the female performers and when it dawned on them that their lives were a disaster beyond all repair, and that they were so demeaned that anything was fair game if it had a check at the end of it. That clip is a prime example of this.

Its some guys job to shovel trash in the landfill, others have to mop up the vomit and blood in emergency rooms, and others get stuck tarring one roof after another in the sun belt. Pretty much any honest job you can find is something that another person does not want to do.

Getting paid to have sex seems like a pretty sweet deal.Embarrassingly bad sex is still sex, and a paycheck is a paycheck.
Aside from the whole "I wanted to be an astronaut and ended up an accountant" aspect of it, the actors don't seem to be too bothered by the arrangement.

Big Data meets pornography?

Scene: an office, somewhere in the Valley...
(doorbell rings)

Guy: Hi ma'am, I got a call that you were having a problem with your data?
Woman: you're so right. I'm running SQL Server right now, and my box is running real hot
Guy: (smirking) Have you considered a Big Table? I've got a Big Table right here. I can stuff it into your box, if you like.
Woman (coyly) Well, I'd certainly like to see how that performs...
Guy: Well here it is, why don't you unzip it?

etc...
