Data. So Much Data.
It's everywhere. But why?
Data is good because it can be used to help us understand, to educate us and to drive improvements. It ‘translates’ concepts that may be difficult to grasp into factS. Data can prove or disprove hypotheses or theories.
Bad data can be used to mislead or even lie to us. Bad data and bad data uses can influence us and push an agenda.
It all boils down to this. Is it factual or fabricated? Is it used correctly or is it misused or abused? There is more, of course. But that’s a start.
