I also think that we are going to have learn to throw away more data too. This will probably be a rough road in data management. Those of you who are major influencers in such things will have to assist businesses in deciding, perhaps more than ever, what data to keep in what granularity and for how long. This may be BI data related process and it feels somewhat like that to me. Perhaps this is just part of some of your jobs in the data warehousing arena.
Of course, I hope Steve wasn't slighting us developers as being unprofessional when he said "SQL Server professionals and developers" :-P
