You have to love the IT industry – it really does conceive the best
new terms, acronyms and buzzwords. “Dark data” sounds like something
Ridley Scott came up with for the Prometheus sequel.
there are a variety of definitions for the term, they are all very
similar. My suggested meaning is – retained data or information that is
not being used or accessed for current business activities, and whose
contents is not well known or structured in a readily accessible manner.
most likely sounds like a verbose way of saying “old, retained
information.” The interesting thing about dark data is that in fact at
its simplest, it literally is “old, retained information.”

"The problems of our economy have occurred not as an outgrowth of laissez-faire, unbridled competition.
They have occurred under the guidance of federal agencies, and under the umbrella of federal regulations."
Senator Ted Kennedy, in defending trucking deregulation in 1978.
