Rakesh’s Data Mining Definition

An Expansive Definition of Data Mining (Rekesh Agrawal, KDD06):
Deriving value from a data collection by studying and understanding the structure of the constituent data.

This is the closest in meaning to what I have in mind for “Datarology”. I particular like the part of the definition where he used “understanding …” instead of “analyzing …”, because I believe Synthesizing is an equally important activity for Datarology as analyzing.
