Who doesn’t love a fun fact?
Data is incredibly valuable.
Once we start doing something repeatedly, we notice variations between each action.
If we want to be really good, we start to look for a pattern to understand how to improve on it.
We collect the data points and build the model.
We average out our experiences in the hope that — if and when it happens again, we’ll be able to react better, faster, and with more confidence.
But all models are wrong. Technology fails.
That doesn’t mean they’re useless.
We shouldn’t mistake a model or a theory for the Truth.
No matter how often something has happened, there is no guarantee it will happen again.
The Universe will always surprise us.
That’s its job.
