(We're investing a lot of time and effort building a great community here so it's important that we know at least a little bit about our members. Please answer all questions, even if briefly!). #1: Why are you interested in "the business of data"?

The business of Data is the business of humanity. Many of the tools and technologies we have developed through the ages have been designed to help us collect information about ourselves. I don't necessarily buy the Data -> Information -> Knowledge -> Wisdom paradigm, but I do recognize that more we understand how to collect and analyze data securely, the more we can do good for people, both in terms of social good and profitability.

Where do you work (name of company, institution) or study (name of school) and what do you do?

I currently attend and am employed by the New School.

Please confirm your first name AND last name (we must provide a full list to venue security prior to events; you will not be authorized into the building without this info and an ID)
