Data, Members. Data is not magic. Nor is it mysterious, supernatural, malevolent, wicked. Data is not anthropomorphic; it has neither care nor creed nor hopes or dreams. Data is information that is electronically processed to be read by machines, or humans looking at those machines. The methods but which data comes into existence, however, are all of the above and much, much more. This week, Members, don’t further obscure the heady binary times we live in by making godlike something that is quite human.
