"Data is the New Intel Inside" - Tim O'Reilly

Tim has made this point when he wrote one of his first and most thought provoking article on Web2.0. If you are a technologies you must internalize this.

I believe that "Knowledge, data, information are the key inputs that you process with intelligence to generate value."

Here is another interesting article from Tim with some additional book sales data points that continue to support the point.

The references to various enabling technologies for Web 2.0 by Tim O'Reilly prompted me to mention the recent pricing change for MYSQL. You can now buy an enterprise license for $40,000 and as they put it "Deploy an unlimited number of MySQL Enterprise Servers for the price of a single CPU of Oracle Enterprise Edition".
