The sentences:

It was easier to fund the growing of more corn than to create a system for feeding those who were hungry. Now we have silos of excess data rotting while millions hunger for the solutions to unforeseen problems.

Why not "excess data in silos"? Or is it like saying "mountains of /tons of XXX"?

Absolutely, Taka, just like 'mountains of /tons of', but using a more appropriate metaphor.
