What is Taming (the) Data (Deluge)?
This blog is my recreation; a break, if you will, from the more serious issues of long-term digital preservation and machine-level policy implementation in a data grid that are the focus of my work. This blog is also my practice area for learning to write concisely and clearly. Currently, topics trend towards “how” someone or some organization disseminated, used, and managed (“tamed”) their data, and I post a related visualization, animation, or video. Short and sweet, both for this writer and any readers.
I’d like to thank my colleagues at the DICE Center for the inspiration for the title of this blog (p. 8). I originally called it “Taming the Data Deluge“, and even registered the domain for it, but I am a lazy typist, so “Taming Data” it is.
