My dad has spent some of his retirement doing hobbyist machine learning projects. He heard the term “data lake” a while back and has taken to calling his datasets a “data swamp.” Feels like a terminology improvement the whole field could get behind.

This is brilliant, I’ve not come across this term before but I could definitely get behind using it to describe data that comes out of customer systems like Jonathon says he already does at his workplace.
