JP Rangaswami thinks deeply (and hilariously) about disruptive data.
With a background in economics and journalism, JP Rangaswami has been a technology innovator and chief information officer for many leading financial firms. As an advocate for open source and disruptive technologies, Rangaswami has been a leading force in the success of multiple startups, including School of Everything, Salesforce.com and Ribbit. He blogs (unmissably) at Confused of Calcutta.

“We were hunter-gatherers of information, and we moved from that to becoming farmers and cultivators of information.”
“Are we going to reach the stage where information has a percentage of fact associated with it?”
