Shoutout to Taming Data Readers/The Great Office War

I’d like to give a shoutout to the Taming Data readers. This blog is now going on ten months old; I appreciate your interest and I’d like to thank you for reading me.

In honor of all of you who are out in the trenches, taming data day in and day out, sweating over data quality, worrying about content ingest, migrating data from one system to another, worrying about how to use, display, visualize, manage, steward, and curate data and information for use & re-use…on this last day of the month of September, I give you…The Great Office War by runawaybox.

Sometimes, you just need to blow off some steam and have some fun.

When I worked at a regional ISP a few years ago, I organized a team from my division to attack another division. The GM found out and cancelled the war. He loved the team bonding, and the fact that we could all work together to organize a joint attack. He was not against the two divisions having a nerf gun war. He had a great sense of humor. He cancelled it because we had customers on site at random times, and he didn’t want us running around with guns with customers nearby, even if they were nerf toys. I’ve always regretted not being able to go to war with the other division.

Do you have any favorite scenes from this video or stories from your own office nerf gun wars you’d like to share?
