|I am afraid that people will be afraid of what I’ll say here, but: we are slowly, but surely, switching from a Web where Data worth everything to a Web where Data worth nothing.Why people are afraid of that? Because such a switch adds insecurity into their plans, their businesses and so their lives. Such people will ask themselves:
Yeah knowledge is power. But the question is: is data the knowledge? Is knowledge a synonym of data?
I don’t think so. Data is nothing; data worth nothing; data is everywhere; data is generated by anything on this Planet.
Data worth nothing, it is what you will do with data, how you will use it, how you will process it that worth everything.
Data worth nothing; this is the process getting data to create knowledge that worth everything.
The key of a successful business plan in a Web where data worth nothing is the process: how to manipulate, how to do calculations over that data to make it meaningful and knowledgeable?
This is the process that worth everything in a Web where data worth nothing.
Now that I say that, check what will happen with the Web in 5 years.
The conclusion of this story is not to be afraid to give your data away. In any case, you can only benefit from doing so.
