People who are good at “big data” right now are benefiting like those who were good at HTML in the ’90s. It’s a fairly easy skill to pick up, but because it sounds hard many folks are not taking the time to learn the tools.

I dislike these kinds of information asymmetries. However I do like like that this illustrates why it is important to work in the spaces that seem difficult: because there you will find less competition.
