Video: Doug Stephens (Retail-Prophet) and Gerd Leonhard discuss the PRISM/NSA affair and what it means for the future of big data and commerce

Doug and me just finished a pretty snappy Google Hangout on the topic of how the PRISM / NSA / Snowden affair will impact consumer behavior, e-commerce, big data business models and cloud computing.  Doug really knows his stuff and is always great fun to talk to, find out more about him, here and here (twitter). We will be doing some speaking gigs together, soon, as well, so… stay tuned!
