Classification – It’s a Race to the Finish

I dislike it when I read criticisms of classification technologies. Not just ours, mostly anyone’s in our space. Some work better than others, but classification is not ‘a thing of the past’ or ‘no longer valid in this day and age.’

We Are a Commodity. Happy Data Privacy Day on January 28?

I have had my personal digital information compromised more times than I would like – I hope the person who purchased the Dyson vacuum on my checking account is enjoying it, the beer my husband and I shared at Whole Foods maybe wasn’t worth the cost, and the handing over of all my personal health information in the emergency room to the wrong person, to name but a few.…
