Sometimes I, along with other folks in my social network circles and groups, describe myself as a data geek.
Another none anonymous data geek, Rich Murnane, recently started a series of excellent cartoons on his blog about DataGeek’s first days on a new job. Hard work indeed.
Then the data geeky corporate twitter account of IBM Initiate has made a twittpoll asking: Do you consider yourself a data geek or a management geek?
Anyway I stood firm and admitted that I am a data geek. Because the world has always been crowded with management consultants with little attention to the needs of the data. Someone has to take care about the data. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.
