Very interesting.

Several sky surveys in the last decade have produced huge amounts of data. Two methods that have come to the forefront in dealing with this avalanche of data are 1) use of computers to sift through the huge pile and 2) post it on the web and let amateurs have at it.

It is, IMHO, the most exciting time ever for an amateur astronomer. You now have access to world class data from some of the best telescopes.
