Here's the recap of my in-class presentation for the 9th session for the (2009) "Future of Advertising" course at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). On March 23 we got granular and talked about Data, but not just on obsessive detail. Instead, we focused on the idea that data can help propel better stories, more effective media and more useful technology. Many thanks to Patty Henderson from Magnet360 for stopping by to share her perspective; and a big thanks to Chris Wexler and Kristen Findley for sharing their links and resources.
