'Farming' for data

A quote from the Business Technology section of the June 14, 2012 WSJ:

Every business that exists now is a data business. 

Words spoken not by someone in the IT or business analytics industry, but by the director of development for . . . a product that's sold in the agriculture market. If farmers are now dependent on the harvesting of data, then I guess we really have become integrated into a world in which data is king.

An interesting article and an interesting vantage point on where agriculture and all businesses need to go.
