Is big data a big deal in political science?

Not a day passes when I don’t see something in the news about big data. Sometimes the stories will be about some interesting new big data application. For example I recently read about the WeatherSignal app that is collecting weather data from smartphones. And of course there has been a lot in the news lately about the big data and privacy, such as news reports that the National Security Agency has been using data to model the social connections of some Americans.
