Back in 2013 the big data technology of Google found the original Google. Earlier this year it discovered the books that 100% prove Darwin published a dreadful self-serving fallacy when he claimed no naturalist known to him had read Matthew's earlier 1831 publication of the full theory of 'natural selection' many years before he claimed to have discovered it independently of Matthew's prior published discovery. Darwin's fallacy is proven because Big Data discovered books and articles written by Darwin's and Wallace's associates that actually cited Matthew pre-1858. In other words before Darwin and Wallace's work was read before the Linnean Society and before Darwin first published the Origin of Species. Contrary to what he wrote, therefore, naturalists that Darwin DID know personally, and who were part of his close social network HAD read Matthew's prior published discovery. See Sutton 2014 for the full Big Data facilitated story of the new discovery of Darwin's and Wallace's great science fraud - including the six newly discovered deliberate lies that Darwin told to achieve primacy over Matthew after stealing his original ideas.

Less remarkable perhaps, but of possible interests to nerds everywhere, today - the same technology that discovered the earliest known use of the word nerd, namely Big Data technology, discovered the best yet published origin of the term and modern meaning of Big Data itself.

Earlier etymological investigators have before me placed the emergence of the modern term in the late 1990's - here and here, Big data analysis reveals earlier authors - as far back as 1979 - used the term 'big data' to refer to integrated banks of computers. However, I believe, from my own research of October 7 2014, that the best contenders to date for the modern term and usage appear to be Ensor and Stevenson (1997, p.485) who were first to use the term Big Data with capital letters in order to name and describe the integration of different large and complex data holding and analysis systems within corporations.
