On data quality and crowdsourcing: Calvin and Hobbes


Data quality and crowdsourcing: Calvin and Hobbes

While 15 years old, the cartoon above illustrates the issues with data quality in business intelligence, performance measurement and benchmarking initiatives.


Calvin: “I’m filling out a reader survey for Chewing magazine. See, they asked how much money I spend on gum each week, so I wrote ‘$500.’ For my age, I put ’43’ and when they asked what my favorite flavor is, I wrote ‘garlic/curry.'” Hobbes: “This magazine should have some amusing ads soon.” Calvin: “I love messing with data.”
