Our Philosophy:
Data will have a source-of-truth.  We track where it came from.  This means that it is entered once and used many times.  Turning data into information requires context.  Using standards, data take on an agreed upon meaning and a larger social context.  Data encoded using standards-based methodologies can 1) record an event or instance and be 2) statistically aggregated for purposes of trending and benchmarking.  Similarly, events & data can disaggregate or be broken down through disassembly, dissection etc.

Data system designers must address what scientists and storytellers know, that every data element is a story.  The story focus changes as we move up towards the social constructs or down to the sub-cellular detail.  Vital details of the story vary depending on the goals of our audience.”
–Phil Barr, 2001
