Tell me what you think
And I'm tossing in a couple bonus questions this time.
• Do you read the print edition? Why or why not?
• What do you like about the newspaper?
• What don't you like?
• Do you read postbulletin.com? When and where do you read it?
• What do you like or dislike about the Web site?
• Do you get more out of the newspaper this year than you did last year? How about postbulletin.com?
• Would you recommend the Post-Bulletin in any of its forms to a friend?
In a February issue, The Economist looked at "The Data Deluge" for many perspectives. Wal-Mart's databases are being pumped with 1 million sales a hour. Facebook has 40 billion photos on it. Tech companies are focusing more and more on analysis data like IBM's purchase of the data-savvy firm, SPSS, in Rochester.
We are inundated with information all day, everyday.
Interpreting and understanding the information is becoming an exercise in triage. That means only dealing with what you most need or want and letting the rest wash over you with no consideration or analysis.
• What data do you need help turning into usable information? What kind questions do you need help answering everyday?
