Imagine that you suddenly have access to a massive new business resource. It can be used to build new companies that deliver better healthcare, offer in-depth investment tools, provide energy more efficiently, improve transportation, or offer a wide range of consumer services through mobile apps and the web. It can help established companies learn what their customers really think about them, spot market trends early on, and choose the best business partners while avoiding the riskiest ones. It can speed up scientific research by an order of magnitude. And while it takes money and effort to develop these opportunities, the essential resource itself is free.
