When “Good Data” Goes Bad….

i just had a really funny experience, with good data that is…  i just thought i’d pass this along.  i “friended” my wife who just got a facebook account.  facebook decided that “we were just married” and updated my status to say something like: “daniel linstedt is married to julie linstedt”  that’s all well & good, but i’ve been married to julie for over 16 years.  one of my friends “congratulated” me on my new status…   the problem is: the data is good, but the assumption the software algorithm is using is bad.  facebook should have never updated my status for me, especially in this way…  anyhow, it’s just a funny life story that i thought i’d pass along.  if you have something funny you’d like to share, i’d love to hear it, and don’t forget to like my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/datavaultalliance  (flexible scalable dw design)

waiting to hear your funny story….

cheers,
dan linstedt

    Congrats with the marriage 16 year ago Dan.

    25 years ago I had an experience with A Really Bad Address.
