But what if we scrapped this entire debate? What if we quit trying to protect the “individual’s privacy” and opened up the vast reservoirs of big […] Continue Reading

Is your business analytics like Stonehenge or the Burning Man? Unfortunately, too many businesses have Stonehenge analytics. They do not change their analytics and […] Continue Reading
