“Telling the Story” With Open Data

Storytelling is a fundamental component of human communication, conveying the “why” behind the “what”. It’s the stories we tell with data that makes data relevant, but if we’re the only ones telling the story, we miss out on that important feedback – the stories others tell to us. By making data available to all, however, we empower others to also tell and share stories that are compelling to them, and enlightening to us.
