Dizzy with Data

foottrafficFoot traffic data is spinning around us with a dizzying effect.

Why are we losing our equilibrium when looking at the conclusions of data? Think back on the days of Analytics 101, garbage data in -> garbage results out. What’s the value of data unless it captures what is really going on?

airplane phoneYears ago, the only time I unplugged from the world was while 33,000ft high. Flying was a time for making lists, pleasure reading, or even naps. Now, with most flights equipped with WiFi, it’s become a time to catch up on emails or the latest BuzzFeed articles for my kids.

Lack of Invincibility

lack of invincibility

Crowding through the front doors of the Moscone Center, we all look like deer in the headlights. Rushing into the bright lights and recycled air of the conference’s lobby, we are desperate for some direction – where to go, when to be there, who to meet.
