What Is Taming (The) Data (Deluge)?
This “taming data blog” was 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 was the focus of my dissertation work.
Currently, the topics on Taming Data blog 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 designed the Taming Data blog to be an eclectic collection of posts about information systems, aimed at Real People who are experts in other areas. Data can and should be fun, not overwhelming.
So Tell Me About You, Not Just The Taming Data Blog
