If hackers can manipulate markets as easily as we've just witnessed, the market system should be considered broken until controls can be put in place to curb this kind of tampering.
@Andrew, thanks for the post. I totally agree with your opinion that hackers can manipulate markets. I think till we find some solution to fix this we need to suspend high frequency trading. It would be better to put circuit limits at every 1% or 2% so that rapid movements because of HFT can be controlled.

I must say, it's a great opportunity for the Indian soil to use the Big Data for varied purposes. As per the surveys, we all know that certain barriers such as maturity of the big data tools or security is a huge hindrance. But, on the contrary if we see the advantages, they are immense. Talking about in the telcos, it could give a huge competitive edge to get over with the churn rate, and capture much more market as early as possible. Even with other fields, it possesses greater opportunities, but difficult to implement initially.
wow, that is great that Barcelona is engaging is such efforts. I think this is wonderful example that when a local government takes the initiative and promote collaboration among their citizens, private companies and local government they can do many great things together. I live in the Washington D.C area, it seems to me that the people in charge are busy blaming each other and working to compete with one another rather than helping make the city better.

"India's new National Electronics Policy has made it immediately mandatory for all government organizations to give preference to domestically manufactured laptop PCs and tablet PCs. The move is designed to promote domestic manufacturing, but it's also believed to be in the interest of National Security."
Sudha, I agree with these types of policies and may be good in terms of domestic products and security. But how many companies &products we have to cater our requirements. For PC & laptop I think only HCL is going to benefit out of this.

I was reading the list and counting how many new information I am learning. Opposite to common assumptions, government IT employees have their 'pressures' and they are dedicated people. The NJ example is an inspiring one. Sitting in a car, doing your job while you yourself are one of the hurricane victims -is not an easy task.
Thank you Sara for sharign this wonderful 'good to know' lessons.

If the data is anonymized first it may just be a little better. Overall though it sounds like one could never trust a business online any more. Even with anonymization, it is hard to tell just how well that will be done.

I think immigration is a very difficult issue that affects many industries. Restrictions for temporary workers has been increasing year after year. The problem with the immigration bill is that there are many groups whom have different interested and those involve must try to meet all those needs or some if they can. Many Americans would want for IT companies to hire only its national instead of foreigners; while some IT companies, may want the freedom to decide whom they can hire for a project regardless of their visa status, in between, there is the government that must strike a balance between such groups.

The Survey of India says Google's effort to map India is a security risk.
@Sudha, thanks for the post. I am really surprised that Survey of India thinks that Google's effort to map India is a security risk. I really dont understand how adding information about on neighborhood malls, coffee shops etc will create security risk. I am curious to know what is the take of judiciary on this dispute between GOI and Google.
