The tweet linked to a survey asking a number of questions about how respondents used data in their companies, and we’ll be sharing info from that survey in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. In addition, however, the survey tweets collected dozens of responses addressing the initial question in various ways.

Not surprisingly, many were snarky and satirical (love you, Twitter!), but others offered real insight into the short-term future of big data. So we thought we’d share some of the most interesting in this post:
