Data, to make us more human

I've had the pleasure to speak at the PopTech conference in lovely Camden, Maine.
I talked about Data.
But I didn't talk about technology, computer power or algorithms, and I definitely didn't talk about Big Data.

I talked about how to use data to create more meaningful human connections, I talked about small, hand crafted and imperfect data, 
I talked about how we should shift from "data-driven design" to "design-driven data".

I talked about how data is always about people, and how to use data to become more human.
