Nice idea, but it’s really hard to just guess it
I’m not very familiar with the domain, so I’m asking if it should be #datascience or #bigdata or something else

well, #datascience is a general name of field of science, and #bigdata is a name for a particular archetype in a nowadays industry, both terms are wide, broad and cluttered, but #datascience have a potential boundaries and hierarchy inside, where #bigdata is all about buzz by its nature 🙂

#datascience is more general. Most data people work with using the likes of R and Python is not big, but analyzing it is still just a important and the analysis you’d do in Hadoop and Spark

@orangy In my experience, it's better to not create a specific channel until the general channel gets overwhelmed with this specific topic, otherwise you'll create a dead channel
