Jeff Moris1 put together a list of 10 sources and technologies related to Big Data:
Social network profiles
Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud applications
Hadoop MapReduce application results
Data warehouse appliances
Columnar/NoSQL data sources
Network and in-stream monitoring technologies
Kind of a mixed list with one notable omission: big data platforms2 (e.g. DataSift).

Big Data Platforms are different than SaaS and cloud applications as the latter are both the source and processing platform for the data, while the former can process both internal and external data. ↩
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
