Data. It’s what makes the world go ’round.
Every aspect of everything in this world, and as far as I’m concerned some things outside of this world, can be chopped, divided, categorized, classified, and ultimately qualified or quantified into beautiful data. They become tiny snippets of information that can be combined, calculated or even further broken down to represent everything around us. So go ahead and tell me that it’s not data, but money or love like it’s sung in the songs, but how can you quantify it? Oh that’s right, sweet data.
