People want data, they really do. Given the choice between knowing what’s going on and not knowing, almost anyone will choose knowing. People will not, however, choose things that take a long time and are hard to understand. So the question of how to make people data driven is really a question of how to make data accessible. I’ll be discussing barriers to data access and strategies for addressing them.
