Greetings!

Of all the ways computers have made our lives easier, perhaps we should be most grateful for how simple they've made it to manage and make sense of large masses of data. After all, imagine what the job of an accountant for an international corporation would be like if all the number crunching had to be done by hand!

This week we look at data, what we do with it, and how computers have helped us manage it more efficiently. Enjoy!
