As William (not Bill) Shakespeare wrote in the play The Merchant of Venice:All that glisters is not gold; Often have you heard that told
I was reminded about that phrase when commenting on a comment from John Owens in my recent post called Non-Obvious Entity Relationship Awareness.
Loraine Lawson wrote a piece on IT Business Edge yesterday called Adding Common Sense to Data Quality. That post relates to a post by Phil Simon on Mike 2.0 called Data Error Inequality. That post relates to a post on this blog called Pick Any Two.

One of the first posts on this blog actually was Data Quality and Common Sense.
