I chose “Information in Context” as the name of this blog for two primary reasons:
- It’s a central concept behind Business Intelligence, which is one of my main passions and endeavors. This is the idea that information really only becomes “Business Intelligence” when it has been imbued with the appropriate context. One might say that the true art of BI rests not with the technology or the methodology, but rather with the accomplishment of creating context for a given audience.
- It’s sufficiently ambiguous (i.e. flexible) to allow me to post about nearly anything that might be interesting or useful.
The main focus of these postings will be around Business Intelligence, but other areas that might find their way on to the blog could well be personal productivity, cool software, philosophy, music, motorcycles, cooking, photography.
