    If we have data, then we will use the data. If all we have are opinions, then we'll use mine.

    I love data.

    Yep, me too. My work life revolves around data, and while I don't always profess my love for data I do think back to when I taught research methodology and how I would convince my students to at least tolerate data. Lol.

    I bet there are lots of people that hate data. It has a way of contradicting their assumptions.

    I work in market research, so the statement "I love data" doesn't sound too far fetched.

    I can understand it.

    I was fascinated by the data>>information>>knowledge chain and spent a fair amount of time doing complicated statistics on data sets.

    Yes. Aside from whatever else, she seems very competent and confidant.

    I sure do hope so, she'll be supporting me.

    What's wrong with loving data? Some people are very curious and analytical. Hoovers and Dun and Bradstreet data mining Is like crack for those folks when they have to locate specific opportunities.

    Data......

    Data.......

    Mmmmmmmmmmmm

    In 2015: knowledge is power; data is money.

    Yeah, Data was probably the most human character in Star Trek. He was one cool dude for an android. Or was he a robot? Definitely not a 'droid™. Sheesh. I'm confused.
