The provisioning of sensors and the thirst for timely information is increasing at an exponential rate.  Today we typically think about sensors in the environmental context (radiation, temperature, air quality, humidity, etc.), but potentially any real-time data feed can be conceived of as a sensor - including crowdsourcing notifications in emergency management space i.e a Tweet.
