While you may not realize it, you’re a data factory, producing data at every turn you take. Grabbing your morning coffee and paying with a credit card? You’ve produced data for the store and credit card company.
Googling directions to your first meeting of the day? You’ve created data from your search request. Hopping on the bus and swiping your transit card? You just produced data stored with your municipal transportation group Within a matter of minutes, you’ve created a handful of data. Multiply this by the rest of the day, the rest of the year, and wow — so much data has been created, just by you.
