My Heresy

My heresy is that I’m becoming skeptical of so called “data and metrics.” I believe we’ve become a society whose decisions are “data driven” rather than data informed. Numbers are easy to produce but difficult to validate. Of course, if “the data” seems to support your perspective you may disagree. However …
I am not saying that we should throw data and metrics under the bus, just be skeptical.
