Well stated Jer.

Thanks Chad! Indeed it’s good to see so much focus on these kinds of questions & concepts. My own nascent thinking along these lines traces back to 2011; you can see an early version of this essay in my ‘Making Data More Human’ TED.com talk.

I actually think I might have coined the term ‘data humanism’ — at least the first time I can find it is from a talk I gave w/ Acumen in 2014 which later morphed into this Medium post: https://acumenideas.com/whose-data-is-it-anyway-3f9ba60c8924

Like what you read? Give blprnt a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
