A geek about Greek

This ninth Data Quality World Tour blog post is about Greece, a favorite travel destination of mine and the place of origin of so many terms and thoughts in today’s civilization.

Super senior citizens

Today Greece has a problem with keeping records over citizens. A recent data profiling activity has exposed that over 9,000 Greeks receiving pensions are over 100 years old. It is assumed that relatives has missed reporting the death of these people and therefore are taking care of the continuing stream of euro’s. News link here.

Diverse dimensions

I found those good advices for you, when going to Greece today:

Timeliness: When coming to dinner, arriving 30 minutes late is considered punctual.

Accuracy:  Under no circumstances should you publicly question someone’s statements.

Uniqueness: Meetings are often interrupted. Several people may speak at the same time.

(We all have some Greek in us I guess).
