On Data, Ferris Bueller, and Art

Our CEO Kate O’Neill has a guest blog post up today at the Nashville Technology Council site, and she’s drawing some unorthodox parallels between data insights and art:

The name for this technique in art is pointillism. By creating many small dots of color, the artist can create the overall impression of an image in our perception. We have to be willing to allow ourselves to focus at the right level of detail in order to see it.

There’s a lot more. Have a look and come back and let us know what you think in the comments.

    Me again. You pointillism is great. Sometimes we have to guide the client to the right building, much less the right painting before they believe the advantages of web metrics. Dan
