Qualifying our view on why we share and don’t share data!
The question, “Is peanut butter good or bad for me?” frames many of the issues with questions that we pose. Peanut butter is neither good nor bad per say but a binary question ignores the complexity of the response that is needed.
Is sharing data good or bad misses the complexity of what we believe, however qualifying why we do and don’t share data enables us to explore a more nuanced response. Fundamentally any question about sharing data should embrace two different starting positions and understand their impact on outcomes irrespective of agreements; we either believe that sharing data (in this case right now) increases value or decreases value.
