Ubiquitous computing has opened the door to two new revolutions, data collection and data manipulation. Mobile phones, digital cameras, low cost electronics, and wireless internet access have made it possible to collect data any time, anywhere. But what are we doing with the data once it's collected? How do we navigate the oceans of data we generate daily? Where can we find a Rubyist's tools for data mining and manipulation? We'll discuss how to use DataMapper, a Ruby data access library, to make sense of data of all kinds.
