Title: Data, data everywhere, but let’s just stop and think

Abstract: Big data and open data hold tremendous promise. But the hype often ignores the difficulties and risks associated with this promise. Beginning with the observation that people want answers to questions, not simply data, I explore some of the difficulties and risks which lie along the path to finding those answers, and examine how they may be overcome.
