And, sorry Wikipedia, but your page isn’t very helpful if you aren’t a computer scientist. But when you deconstruct it layer by layer, the puzzle starts to make sense. With that out of…See More

Posted on January 26, 2018 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

We now live in a data-immersed society. What used to be a term that was mostly the domain of folks in white lab coats is now thrown around by just about everyone--salespeople, soccer players, surfers, you name it. “How much data do you get in your plan?” “Do you get unlimited data?” So the burning question is, what is data?
