I’ve spent nearly my entire career working on Wall Street and I’ve realized one of the most commonly used refrains is totally wrong

Junta Nakai has spent his career on Wall Street and in financial technology.  In this op-ed, Nakai argues that the common refrain that "data is the new oil" is inaccurate.  While data has potential to drive revenue growth and cut costs, most companies don't have the expertise to get real value from it, he says.  "Data is the oil of the 21st century" is commonly quoted in corporate America today. These eight words embody the excitement and promise that data has the power to redefine comm...

Winners are equipped for terabytes. The vast majority of institutional investors today use Microsoft Ex...

How The Grammys Gloss Over Great Indigenous Music Being Made Today

Chimes like raindrops ripple across a soundscape of vaguely spiritual chanting, made ethereal by digital remastering. The sound is inoffensive ― calming, even. A cedar flute, a traditionally Naive American instrument, introduces itself and flits off. Recorded in 2000, “If I Could Tell You” is one of Yanni’s many contributions to New Age, a musical genre that was given an official Grammy category in 1987 and is still around today. The label ― like so many others in the ever-evolving world of...
