Greetings! Welcome to the DWEL Blog!

The Data Wisdom Explorers League is dedicated to the responsible and appropriate use of data to expand knowledge, solve problems, improve people's lives, and to make the world a better place for all of its inhabitants.

I've founded DWEL in association with Google, as a global resource for discussions, educational outreach, and a range of other relevant services in this essential sphere.

Please see the project launch announcement and DWEL home page for lots more details.

Mailing lists for DWEL announcements and discussions are available, as is the DWEL Data Wisdom Exploration Guide that provides a variety of related resources that you may find of interest.

I hope that you'll join in this effort! Feel free to contact me anytime via, or on +1 (818) 225-2800.
