      I've realized that 5 V makes for a very nice mnemonic. V is 5 in roman numerals, so you can pretty easily remember that there are 5 Vs.
      It's probably just an accident, but makes it things a little easier to remember c:

      Can you please stop writing on paper with markers or atleast suppress the sound of it?

      The sound gives me goosebumps while watching videos. Doesn't it happen to anyone else?

      Only the first 3 Vs given are actually particular to defining Big Data. If the data is such Volume, Velocity, and/or Variety that traditional data management can't handle it well, then it's Big Data. Value and Veracity apply just as well to a single data point. If the data (no matter its size or shape) has no value, then there is no reason to collect or store it. If the data (no matter its size or shape) lacks veracity, then its value is questionable.

      They could solve their problem with the simple expedient of not collecting data.

      Sorry but there is no such thing as Big Data. There might be big database, or big chunks of data, large amount of data, heaps of data. But data in computer term is just a collection of what we humans classify/distinguish/label as "1s & 0s"
