Very Best Wishes for your health and wealth in 3737, or 11BB. Name the animal who’d like 3737, and guess which politician might feel comfortable with the jolly British 11BB.

Well done to our Impress team member for sorting the whole jingbang in record time! I got off to a slow start being unsure about shoot and corrupt as a game. As is so often the case, a little quiet contemplation and discussion with (interrogation of) my fellow IMPs and ‘I get it’. The Sherlock Puzzle was good.

Danny Hillis’ explanation of where we are and where we are headed with information was thought provoking. My first thought is because we can store it, should we? It’s hard to make decisions about future usefulness.

Is data the new oil? When I first heard this phrase I naively thought of oil/data as a lubricant which allows things to operate smoothly. A good example being data/information which is engineered to be shared across organisations in health and welfare, from the cradle to the grave, would be hugely advantageous. I’m sure most of us have experienced frustrated professionals unable to take action just because the necessary information cannot be accessed. Information is the oil which allows action.

Big data = new oil = big bucks http://adage.com/article/dataworks/data-oil/295565/. Is it time to redefine anonymous?
