Data de Ching, ch 6


People come to data with questions
As if they would find simple answers
Then leave

More likely
Answers come, but no one goes
Questions beget questions
Which beget questions
Which beget questions

This is the nature
Of all curious souls

Either model answers are known
Prior to conjuring data
Or their isn’t any ending
Data begets more data
Which begets more data

Data is a representation
Of where our attention is
It grows with our curiosity
It stops when we stop
