You are right to point out that there are differences between data, information, knowledge, judgment and even wisdom. All data is certainly not useful in making informed decisions. But getting the right information at the right time to the right audience is a powerful possibility and one that is more likely today than ever before. For all the dangers of information overload and data bombardment, it is certainly a liberating day when people from far-flung corners of the world are able to access knowledge, contribute to it, and critique it in ways that previously was available to only a select few. To be sure, it takes judgment to sift through the mounds of content available to us and figure out what is really useful. That is a role we can certainly play. But the fact remains there are multiple nodes of knowledge around us and one way to add value is to link up with these nodes and help them connect to us and each other around the topics that are most relevant to our work. Stay tuned on how we can best do that.
