The February edition of Science offers a special collection of articles from scientists in a variety of fields on the challenges and opportunities of working with large amounts of data.

The overwhelming theme seems to be a need for tools, visualizations, and a common vocabulary for expressing, exploring, and working with data across disciplines.

Thanks to Chris Wiggins for the pointer.
